Tunable bioadhesive copolymer hydrogels of thermoresponsive poly(N-isopropyl acrylamide) containing zwitterionic polysulfobetaine.

Abstract

This work describes a novel tunable bioadhesive hydrogel of thermoresponsive N-isopropylacrylamide (NIPAAm) containing zwitterionic sulfobetaine methacrylate (SBMA). This novel hydrogel highly regulates general bioadhesive foulants through the adsorption of plasma proteins, the adhesion of human platelets and cells, and the attachment of bacteria. In this… (More)
