Single ether group in a glycol-based ultra-thin layer prevents surface fouling from undiluted serum

Author affiliations

Abstract

Through systematic structural modification, it is shown that the internal, single oxygen atom of simple monoethylene glycol-based organic films is essential for radically altering the fouling behaviour of quartz against undiluted serum, as characterized by the electromagnetic piezoelectric acoustic sensor. The synergy is strongest with distal hydroxyls.
