Plasma Etching for Fabricating Microfluidic Devices with Patterned Monolayers
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
By fabricating microfluidic devices via (covalent) plasma microcontact patterning (PµCP) and replica molding, we were able create β-CD patterns inside a microfluidic channel. Chemical reactivity and reusability of the devices were validated through host-guest interactions with diadamantane functionalized Cyanine 5 dye (Cy5-Ad2).
