Abstract

In this study, we utilize plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) for the deposition of nanostructures composed of diphenylalanine. PECVD is a solvent-free approach and allows sublimation of the peptide to form dense, uniform arrays of peptide nanostructures on a variety of substrates. The PECVD deposited d-diphenylalanine nanostructures have a range of chemical and physical properties depending on the specific discharge parameters used during the deposition process.
