Abstract

The molecular self-assembly of macromolecular species such as polymers, colloids, nano/microparticles, proteins, and cells when they interface with a solid/substrate surface has been studied for many years, especially in terms of molecular interactions, adsorption, and adhesion. Such fundamental knowledge is practically important in designing smart micro- and nanodevices and sensors, including biologically implantable ones. This review gives a brief sketch of molecular self-assembly and nanostructured multifunctional thin films that utilize secondary molecular interactions at surfaces and interfaces.
