Abstract

Large-area, highly ordered ZnO micropores-arrays consisting of ZnO nanotubes delimited by ZnO nanorods have been successfully fabricated and tested for protein sensing applications. ZnO seed layers have been deposited by Metal Organic Chemical Vapour Deposition and readily patterned by Colloidal Lithography to attain ZnO nanorods growth at selective sites by Chemical Bath Deposition. The used synthetic approach has been proven effective for the easy assembly of ZnO nanoplatforms into high-density arrays. Both patterned and unpatterned ZnO nanorods have been morphologically and compositionally characterised and, thus, tested for model studies of protein mobility at the interface. The patterned layers, having a higher contribution of surface polar moieties than the corresponding unpatterned surfaces, exhibit a reduced lateral diffusion of the adsorbed protein. This evidence is related to the intrinsic porous nature of the ZnO hemispherical arrays characterised by a nanotube-nanorod hybrid networks. The present study gives a great impetus to the fabrication of tunable ZnO nanoplatforms having multiple morphologies and exceptionally high surface areas suitable for application in sensing devices.
