New approaches towards zwitterionic antifouling coatings

Surfaces as used in a variety of biological applications, like biosensors or implants, suffer from fouling by biological components. This unwanted  biofouling can be prevented by coating these surfaces with a thin, zwitterionic coating layer. Currently available coatings mainly exist of ATRP-grafted polymer brushes and can be prepared with a high degree of definition, but their large-scale applicability is rather low due to the very high experimental complexity. This project explores alternative approaches to introduce the crucial elements of such a zwitterionic antifouling coating.
