Surface modification of argon-plasma-pretreated poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) films via UV-induced graft copolymerization with acrylic acid (AAc) was carried out. Galactosylated surfaces were then obtained by coupling a galactose derivative (1-O-(6'-aminohexyl)-D-galactopyranoside) to the AAc graft chains with the aid of a water-soluble carbodiimide (WSC) and N-hydroxysulfosuccinimide (sulfo-NHS). The modified PET films were characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), atomic… CONTINUE READING
