The prevention of protein interactions plays a major role in everyday life, for example on common Teflon surfaces. This review focuses on recent developments in analytical, biochemical, and theoretical techniques that lead to a better understanding of polymeric biomaterials for applications as bioinert and biospecific surface coating materials in biomedical systems.
