Effects of ionic strength and surface charge on protein adsorption at PEGylated surfaces.
PEGylated Nb2O5 surfaces were obtained by the adsorption of poly(L-lysine)-g-poly(ethylene glycol) (PLL-g-PEG) copolymers, allowing control of the PEG surface density, as well as the surface charge.Expand

Effects of cloud-point grafting, chain length, and density of PEG layers on competitive adsorption of ocular proteins.
The effects of pinning density, chain length, and 'cloud point' (CP) versus non-CP grafting conditions have been studied on the ability of polyethylene glycol (PEG) layers to minimize adsorption fromExpand
