Nano-bio interface study between Fe content TiO2 nanoparticles and adenosine triphosphate biomolecules
MetadataShow full item record
The advent of nano-biotechnology has inspired the interface interaction study between engineered nanoparticles (NPs) and biomolecules. The interaction between Fe content titanium dioxide (TiO2) NPs and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) biomolecules has been envisioned. The effect of Fe content in TiO2 matrix was studied using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The increase in Fe content caused a decrease in particle size with change in morphology from spherical to one-dimensional rod structure. The Fe incorporation in the TiO2 matrix reduced the transition temperature from anatase to rutile (A-R) phase along with formation of haematite phase of iron oxide at 400°C. The interaction of Fe content TiO2 NPs with ATP molecule has been studied using spectroscopic method of Raman scattering and infrared vibration spectrum along with TEM. Fe content in TiO2 has enhanced the interaction efficiency of the NPs with ATP biomolecules. Raman spectroscopy confirms that the NPs interact strongly with nitrogen (N7) site in the adenine ring of ATP biomolecule. Engineering of Fe content TiO2 NP could successfully tune the coordination between metal oxide NPs with biomolecules, which could help in designing devices for biomedical applications. © 2019 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
