Paper Abstract

Pure deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is known to be soluble in water only and exhibits poor temperature stability. In contrary, it is well known that the complex of DNA – with cetyltrimethyl ammonium (CTMA) is soluble in alcohols and can be processed into very good optical quality thin films by solution casting and spin deposition. Despite the success of DNA-CTMA, there is still need for new cationic surfactants which would extend the range of available solvents for DNA complex. We test and present experimental results of influence of new surfactants based on benzalkonium chloride (BA), and didecyldimethylammonium chloride (DDCA) for applications in all optical switching.
