Crosslinked polymer multilayers stabilize antifouling coatings

Wednesday, 2 April 2014

In a study material-independent and bioinert hierarchical polymer multilayer coatings were presented.

The researchers revealed that chemical active catecholic hyperbranched polyglycerols (hPGs) formed a foundation layer on versatile surfaces via multivalent anchoring and crosslinking, the activity of which was shielded by bioinert catecholic hPGs.

Coatings prevented protein and cell adhesion

Mono-catecholic hPGs finally terminated all of free catechols to build a flexible bioinert top layer. These coatings perfectly prevented protein and cell adhesion.

The study is published in: Advanced Materials.
