Potential Pulse-Facilitated Active Adsorption of Lubricin Polymer Brushes Can Both Accelerate Self-Assembly and Control Grafting Density

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Self-assembled lubricin (LUB) monolayers are an effective antiadhesive coating for biomedical applications. Long deposition times and limited control over the monolayer grafting density remain impediments to commercialization and applications in advanced sensor technologies. This work describes a novel potential pulse-facilitated coating method that reduces coating times to mere seconds while also providing high-level control over the achieved grafting density. This is the first time that the potential pulse-facilitated method is applied for direct assembling of a large and complex polyelectrolyte.
