Reduction of protein adsorption to a solid surface by a coating composed of polymeric micelles with a glass-like core.


Adsorption studies by optical reflectometry show that complex coacervate core micelles (C3Ms) composed of poly([4-(2-amino-ethylthio)-butylene] hydrochloride)(49)-block-poly(ethylene oxide)(212) and poly([4-(2-carboxy-ethylthio)-butylene] sodium salt)(47)-block-poly(ethylene oxide)(212) adsorb in equal amounts to both silica and cross-linked 1,2… (More)
