Title
Nanomaterials and nanoclusters based on DNA modulation
Abstract

•Switchable nanomachines and responsive nanomaterials.•Nano/subnano metal clusters with desirable physicochemical properties.•Chiral selectors and asymmetric catalysts.

Besides the inherent chirality, DNA is enriched by nitrogen and oxygen functional groups that are preferential to coordinate with transition metal ions, and its self-assembled structures, including the G-quadruplex, the i-motif, and the conventional Watson–Crick duplex, etc., can be adjusted via different base pairings. Recently biotemplating on the basis of DNA self-assembly has been considered as an attractive method to construct switchable nanomaterials, to direct crystal growth and to design enantioselective selectors/catalysts. This review briefly covers the recent progress relevant to DNA modulated nano/subnano materials. The long-term goal of this area of research is to explore novel promisingly environmental-benign approaches to construct switchable nanomachines, nano/subnano clusters and enantioselective recognition platforms respectively, through DNA-based modulation.
