Abstract

Nylon nanorods and nanotubes (200 nm diameter) were fabricated by the membrane wetting technique (solvent and melt wetting) from a range of nylons (6; 6,6; 6,9; 6,10; 6,12; 11; 12, 6(3)T) and nylon blended with different dyes (Nylon Cast Blue, Nylon 6/6 Black) or with molybdenum disulfide (Nylon cast MDS). The 65-μm long nylon nanotubes and nanorods were characterized by scanning electron microscopy. The nanoscale nylon 6,6 served as an effective high surface area alternative to a nylon membrane as a solid support in a chemiluminescent assay for nylon-bound biotinylated nucleic acids based on streptavidin- alkaline phosphatase and chemiluminescent detection of the bound alkaline phosphatase label with the dioxetane substrate, CDP-Star. Layer-by-layer deposition of the cationic polymer (Sapphire-II™; Tropix) onto the nylon 6,6 nanostructures prior to UV-cross-linking with biotinylated DNA resulted in further enhancement of binding and detection of biotinylated DNA.
