Example text

As the PEG chains are highly dynamic in an aqueous environment, the formation of strong hydrogen-bonding between protein and polymer is effectively suppressed. Besides those enthalpic effects, the high dynamics of the PEG chains results in a high entropy, which is also unfavorable for protein adsorption. It has been generally assumed that the surface resistance of PEG functionalized substrates is a result of the steric repulsion grafted PEG chains show for adsorbing proteins [138, 140, 141]. However, this assumption is valid only if the grafted PEG chains are of very high molecular weight and show large enough grafting densities to form polymer brushes [142].
