Self-assembly, antipolyelectrolyte effect, and nonbiofouling properties of polyzwitterions.


An explanation of the unique nonbiofouling properties of polyzwitterions (PZ) is proposed [in this paper, the term "polyzwitterion" is preferred to "polybetain"]. The existence of an osmotic component of the driving force of the antipolyelectrolyte effect (APE) and the parameters governing this phenomenon are quantitatively established. The correlation… (More)
