Numerous strategies exist to prevent biological fouling of surfaces in physiological environments; our strategy focuses on the modification of surfaces with poly-N-substituted glycine oligomers (polypeptoids). We previously reported the synthesis and characterization of three novel polypeptoid polymers that can be used to modify titanium oxide surfaces… CONTINUE READING
