Salmaan H. Baxamusa and Karen K. Gleason Random Copolymer Films with Molecular-Scale Compositional Heterogeneities that Interfere with Protein Adsorption Advanced Functional Materials 19
Randomly amphiphilic copolymers are deposited by photoinitiated chemical vapor deposition (piCVD). Control over material properties, such as swellability, surface roughness, and water contact angle, are demonstrated over a range of copolymer compositions. The copolymer films adsorb less protein than either of the respective homopolymers, and a model suggesting that molecular-scale heterogeneities in surface composition inhibit protein adsorption is presented.
