  • We report on the preparation of polyelectrolyte films based on biopolymers whose nanomechanical properties can be tuned by photo-cross-linking. Cationic poly(L-lysine) was layer-by-layer assembled with anionic hyaluronan (HA) derivatives modified by photoreactive vinylbenzyl (VB) groups. The study of the multilayer buildup by quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring showed that the presence of VB groups does not influence significantly the multilayer growth. Then the VB-modified… CONTINUE READING
