Title: Dopa and dopamine modification of metal oxide semiconductors, method for attaching biological molecules to semiconductors

Abstract

A method is provided for selective binding and detecting target molecules, and a method for detecting biological molecules, the method comprising supplying a semi-conductor capable of charge pair separation, and juxtaposing affinity moieties to the semi-conductor so as to effect changes in the charge pair separation characteristics when the affinity molecules are bound to the target molecules.
