Multiple Parameters Characterizing Interfacial Films of a Protein Analogue, Polymethylglutamate

  • R. E. Baier

Abstract

Perhaps the least understood aspect of polymer structure is the organization of backbone and side chains which prevails at the boundaries between contacting dissimilar phases. For example, the whole subject of biological adhesion—ranging from thrombus formation on implanted prosthetic materials through barnacle adhesion to ship bottoms—is limited by our lack of detailed knowledge of the predominantly proteinaceous “conditioning” films which adsorb on solid surfaces. These films are thought to be a prerequisite to cell adhesion (1,2). Cell membranes, themselves, are interfacial polymeric structures which are inadequately described despite intense, continuing study.
