Brushed polyethylene glycol and phosphorylcholine for grafting nanoparticles against protein binding

Author affiliations

Abstract

To provide a molecular insight for guiding polymer coating in surface science and nanotechnology, here we examined the structures of brushed polyethylene glycol(bPEG)- and phosphorylcholine(bPC)-grafted iron oxide nanoparticles and analyzed their protein avoiding properties. We show bPC as an advantageous biomimetic alternative to PEG in rendering stealth nanostructures.
