Tunable hydrogel thin films from reactive synthetic polymers as potential two-dimensional cell scaffolds.


This article describes the formation of cross-linked 10-200-nm-thick polymer hydrogel films by alternating the spin-coating of two mutually reactive polymers from organic solutions, followed by hydrolysis of the resulting multilayer film in aqueous buffer. Poly(methyl vinyl ether-alt-maleic anhydride) (PMM) was deposited from acetonitrile solution, and poly… (More)
