By C.-M. Pradier, Y.J. Chabal

IR spectroscopy has develop into with none doubt a key strategy to solution questions raised while learning the interplay of proteins or peptides with sturdy surfaces for a basic perspective in addition to for technological functions. precept, experimental set ups, parameters and interpretation principles of numerous complex IR-based strategies; software to biointerface characterisation during the presentation of contemporary examples, could be given during this publication. it is going to describe the right way to characterise amino acids, protein or bacterial pressure interactions with steel and oxide surfaces, through the use of infrared spectroscopy, in vacuum, within the air or in an aqueous medium. effects will spotlight the performances and views of the procedure. Description of the foundations, expermental setups and parameter interpretation, and the idea for a number of complicated IR-based concepts for interface characterisationContains examples which show the ability, strength and bounds of the IR techniquesHelps discovering the main sufficient mode of analysisContains examplesContains a word list by means of suggestions and via keyword phrases

As observed previously for the Gly-Pro molecules, the features can be assigned to the amide I and II vibrations and to vibrations from the constituent amino acid functionalities, indicating that IGF is adsorbed intact at the surface [38]. With increasing coverage, middle and upper spectra of Figure 19(b), the features at 1743 cmÀ1 (nC=O ) and at 1666 cmÀ1 (amide I ) grow into two broad and very intense bands including other vibrations like the asymmetric Chapter | 1 RAIRS under ultrahigh vacuum conditions on metal surfaces 23 deformation of NH3+ at 1631 cmÀ1, and some weak absorption in the COOÀ asymmetric stretching mode region (around 1600 cmÀ1).

Some effort has thus been made to find the best experimental conditions to apply PM-IRRAS to dielectric substrates and, in particular, to the air–water interface. Quantitative analysis and modeling of the detected signal have revealed that there is also a surface selection rule in the case of a dielectric substrate, which allows differentiation of transition moments according to their orientation with respect to the surface. The first use of PM-IRRAS for the study of a Langmuir monolayer at the air–water interface was reported in 1993 [3] and its potential for the study of biosystems has been rapidly recognized.

For the analysis of monolayers spread at the air–water interface, problems are still increased because of the very strong absorptions occurring in the liquid Biointerface Characterization by Advanced IR Spectroscopy.

Obtaining good IRRAS spectra of spread monolayers is possible but requires long acquisition duration and accurate control of vapor pressure during sample and reference (uncovered water) spectrum recordings.
