Bacteria-repulsive polyglycerol surfaces by grafting polymerization onto aminopropylated surfaces.

The formation of hydrogels on surfaces is a frequently used strategy to render these surfaces biorepulsive. Hyperbranched polyglycerol layers are a promising alternative to the frequently used polyethyleneglycol layers. Here, we present a strategy to covalently graft polyglycerol layers onto surfaces by first depositing an aminopropylsiloxane layer, which… CONTINUE READING
