Controlling the growth behaviour of multilayered films via layer-by-layer assembly with multiple interactions.

Layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly of chitosan-graft-phenyl (CHI-g-Ph) and poly(aspartic-graft-octadecyl) chain (PASP-g-OD) with multiple interactions, i.e. electrostatic interaction and hydrophobic interaction, was studied and the growth rate of multilayered films was found to be strongly dependent on the concentration of NaCl in the aqueous solution. LbL… CONTINUE READING
