Pages: 683 - 685

Keywords: nanotopology, protein adsorption, block copolymer, thiol-ene

This work focuses on understanding the effects that nanotopology has on protein adsorption. Functionalized block copolymers were synthesized and processed to produced highly ordered, nanopattered films. Experiments utilizing a quart crystal microbalance were completed to investigate the impact that nanopatterning has on protein deposition/adsorption under static and dynamic conditions.
