- ... This work demonstrates the use of bacteriophage conjugated magnetic particles (Fe3O4) for the rapid capturing and isolation of Escherichia coli. The investigation of T4 bacteriophage adsorption to silane functionalised Fe3O4 with amine (NH2), carboxylic (COOH) and methyl (CH3) surface functional groups reveals the domination of net electrostatic and hydrophobic interactions in governing bacterioph ...
