Switchable, biocompatible surfaces based on glycerol copolymers, Chemical Communications
Marie Weinhart, Tobias Becherer, Rainer Haag – 2010
Two thermoresponsive copolymers based on glycerol were synthesized and tethered onto gold surfaces via SAM formation. Below the LCST protein resistant surfaces were obtained while fibrinogen adsorbed above the LCST. It was demonstrated that these switchable properties can be applied to control fibroblast cell adhesion and detachment.
