Résumé / Abstract

The interaction between amino acids (L-cysteine, L-lysine) and gold nanoparticle layers deposited on ITO glasses was investigated. The citrate capped gold nanoparticles (AuNP) were first deposited as a thin layer onto silanized ITO and subsequently linked with an amino acid, due to strong affinity of thiol and amine groups to gold. The gold nanoparticles had an elliptical shape, with size varying between 7 and 14 nm, as indicated by TEM analysis. After deposition on ITO substrate, the nanoparticles self-assembled into large aggregates with poor contact between, as revealed by AFM. After linking L-cysteine or L-lysine to the surface of nanoparticles layer, a change in morphology occured. A better contact between the gold aggregates boundary developed, which improved the conducting properties of the nanostructured layer. The electrical resistance of the AuNPs layer, obtained from I-V measurements, was very high (2.8 x 1013 Ω) and slightly decreased after linking the NPs with amino acids.
