Biomimetic poly(2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine) (poly(MPC)) brushes with graft density 0.06-0.39 chains/nm2 and chain length 5-200 monomer units were prepared from silicon wafer surfaces by combining self-assembly of initiator and surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP). Water contact angle, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and atomic force microscopy were used to characterize the modified surfaces. These surfaces with well-controlled poly(MPC) brushes were… CONTINUE READING
