Here, we report a novel method of micropatterning oligonucleotides via aromatic groups as linkers on partially amino-terminated diamond and the inherence on subsequent hybridization. The covalent immobilization of probe oligonucleotides and characterization of immobilized probe oligonucleotides with carboxylic compounds were investigated by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). To confirm the effects of linker flexibility in a low amino group on diamond for probe oligonucleotides, three kinds of dicarboxylic compound - adipic acid, terephthalic acid, and trimesic acid - were used for immobilization of probe oligonucleotides, like linkers; and these oligonucleotides were hybridized with target oligonucleotides labeled with Cy 5 on the micropatterned diamond surface. The hybridization intensities determined by epifluorescence microscopy were compared and analyzed.
