Abstract

Recently, carbon-based nanomaterials have provided an interesting approach for bioanalysis platform. Among them, graphene has attracted great attention in bioanalysis applications due to its remarkable electronic structure and high surface to volume ratio which contribute to the high sensitivity of graphene-based sensor devices. The non-covalent functionalization of graphene with pyrene-based linker molecules brings great benefits, allowing to maintain unaltered the original graphene electronic properties and its low aspecific interactions with biological materials. In this work, we describe a non-covalent functionalization of graphene with a stealth-peptide bearing a terminal pyrene group (Peptide-Py), in view of the development of nanodevices such as tunable biosensor/bioanalyte concentrator. The terminal cysteine residual of the peptide would allow a further attachment of the capture antibody to the functionalized graphene. Herein, the functionalization of graphene and thus the adsorption process and self-assembly morphology of the system onto nanoscale have been demonstrated both experimentally and by computational methods carrying out simulations to investigate the adsorption of a single molecule of peptide-pyrene on the graphene layer. Graphene was grown on copper substrates via chemical vapor deposition (CVD) technique and then transferred on Au coated quartz crystals for quartz crystal nanobalance (QCN). CVD graphene was self-assembled with the stealth peptide in flow and the functionalization was monitored by measuring the frequency variation using a QCN. To confirm the functionalization, the samples were characterized with several techniques. Furthermore, we investigated the possibility to restore the pristine graphene layer applying a ramp of temperature, to allow the re-utilization of the sensor.
