Preparation and characterization of Zonyl-coated nanodiamonds with antifouling properties

Abstract

The paper reports on covalent linking of a modified amphiphilic polymer, the alkynyl-terminated Zonyl, to azide-terminated nanodiamonds by click chemistry. An analysis of the hybrid particle stability is presented based on size and zeta potential measurements. The antifouling character of the grafted nanodiamonds was investigated using bovine serum albumin as a model protein. The protein adsorption was quantified using a Bradford assay and found to be reduced by 30% in the presence of the Zonyl layer.
