β-Peptide coatings by surface-initiated polymerization.

Abstract

Homopolymers of β-lactams can be grown by surface-initiated polymerization. These surface-linked β-peptides are living polymers with the potential to be utilized as tunable, protease-resistant interfaces in multiphase structural composites where the characteristics of the interface influence bulk properties.
