Model surfaces - SAMs Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are well- organized organic surfaces, very useful to study the properties of the interface between a material and biological media, at the molecular scale. Form highly ordered systems Easy to prepare Wide range of functional groups to be explored XXXXX S SS S S X X- (CH2)n- SH (X = OH; COOH; CH 3 ; NH 2 ; SO 3 H; etc...) gold
Research purpose O=C=N-(CH 2 ) 17 CH 3 selective for albumin C18 ligand C18 SAMs (0-10%) inhibit non-specific protein adsorption EG 4 SAMs gold HS-(CH 2 ) 11 -(O-CH 2 CH 2 ) 4 -OH Develop a model surface that binds albumin in a selective and reversible way in order to decrease the adhesion and activation of platelets.
Selective & reversible adsorption of Albumin EG4-2.5%C18 SAMs are the only surfaces to exchange almost all the pre-adsorbed HSA by HSA in solution, but not by HFG Albumin increases with the amount of C18 ligands on the surface
