Bacterial anti-adhesive properties of a monolayer of zwitterionic block copolymer micelles.

Abstract

We report on bacterial anti-adhesive properties of a monolayer of block copolymer micelles (BCMs) with zwitterionic coronae and pH-responsive cores. BCMs were obtained by pH-induced self-assembly of selectively betainized poly[3-dimethyl (methacryloyloxyethyl) ammonium propane sulfonate-b-2-(diisopropylamino)ethyl methacrylate] (βPDMA-b-PDPA) in aqueous… (More)
