Plasma-generated poly(allyl alcohol) antifouling coatings for cellular attachment

Watkins, Lucy M., Lee, Adam F., Moir, James W.B. and Wilson, Karen (2017). Plasma-generated poly(allyl alcohol) antifouling coatings for cellular attachment. ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering, 3 (1), pp. 88-94.

Abstract

Conformal poly(allyl alcohol) (PAA) coatings were grown on a biomedical grade polyurethane scaffold using pulsed plasma polymerization of the allyl alcohol monomer. The creation of a continuous wave polymer primer layer increases the interfacial adhesion and stability of a subsequent pulsed plasma deposited PAA film. The resulting PAA coatings are strongly hydrophilic and stable following 7 days incubation in biological media. Films prepared through this energyefficient, two-step process promote human dermal fibroblast cell culture, while resisting E. coli biofilm formation.
