Today, the capability of the human olfactory system is still, in many ways, superior to that of the electronic nose. Although electronic noses are often compared with their biological counterpart, they neither mimic its neural architecture nor achieve its discriminating performance. Experimental studies on the mammalian olfactory system suggest that the nasal cavity, comprising of the mucous layer... View full abstract»
Proteins represent versatile building blocks for the realisation of nanostructured materials to be applied in the nanobiotechnological field. The Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique was utilised as a means to develop nanobiodevices based on protein molecules. Namely, engineered Cytochrome P450 thin films were fabricated and characterised. The possibility to employ LB-based protein structures to use i... View full abstract»
