Block copolymers consisting of poly (gamma-benzyl L-glutamate) and poly (ethylene oxide) as the hydrophobic and hydrophilic components, respectively were prepared. Cell attachment onto the surfaces of block copolymers fabricated either as well-defined ordered Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films or solvent cast microphase-separated structures was studied. On ordered LB surfaces, adherent fibroblasts were larger than on the microphase-separated cast surfaces within 15 min. The difference in cell… CONTINUE READING
