Abstract

Although the use of sugar and sugar derivatives has been documented in polymer research for many years, there are no reports that would utilize these species as polymerization sites of colloidal polymeric particles that, later on, may be released during particle coalescence to form films with surfaces that differentiate protein adsorption. These studies show that, when n-dodecyl-beta-D-maltoside (DDM) is utilized for the synthesis and stabilization of poly[methyl methacrylate-co-(n-butyl acrylate)] (p-MMA/nBA) colloidal particles, upon particle coalescence DDM stratifies near the film-air (F-A) interface. By using attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared (ATR FT-IR) spectroscopy and internal reflection infrared imaging (IRIRI), comparative adsorption studies on p-MMA/nBA surfaces exposed to globulin (Glo), fibrinogen (Fib), and bovine serum albumin (BSA) reveal that the presence of DDM selectively inhibits Glo and Fib adsorption, but does not affect BSA. The presence of DDM also enhances the rate of mobility of sodium dioctylsulfosuccinate (SDOSS) resulting from interactions between DDM and SDOSS moieties, and the surface morphologies change as a result of concentration variations of DDM in the colloidal dispersions.
