A facile method was established using composition-gradient pattern on zeolite surface to guide the deposition and formation of chemical and biomolecular patterns .The goal is to achieve well-defined spatial patterns of bioactive molecules of precise quantity in a fast and reliable manner. The high cost of biomolecules and recent advances in detection technology motivate the creation of smaller and finer pattern features. High signal fidelity is obtained by increasing the probe density per sites and optimizing the spatial presentation of probe molecules. This work describes the use of composition-gradient pattern created on a zeolite-coated surface to guide the deposition of biomolecules.our results demonstrate that the use of composition-gradient pattern in zeolite is an inexpensive and convenient way to direct the deposition of biological molecules into organized surface features.
