This paper is the first report about the morphology of semi-crystalline poly(e-caprolactone) (PCL) brushes studied by Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) in tapping mode. This represents a convenient way to observe how the growth of a polymer proceeds from a thiol monolayer on gold substrate in terms of grafting density and thiol monolayer stability.
