Abstract

This paper investigates the process variables involved in layer-by-layer (LbL) fabrication of protein nanotubes. Three main process variables were identified as having potential to significantly affect end results. These included protein concentration, solution volume used per layer, and storage time. The effects of each variable on protein activity were studied through controlled experiments and then rationalized in this report.
