Abstract: Plasma polymerization technique is employed to deposit functional thin films on the polymeric substrates, which is developed as a scaffold for hepatocytes culture. Thin films of different carboxylic acid densities were prepared by pulsed plasma polymerization of maleic anhydride. Chemical compositions of these plasma polymerized films were determined by using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and colorimetric analysis. The swelling behaviors of these plasma polymerized films at various relative humidity and in aqueous solutions were investigated using optical waveguide spectroscopy. COOH groups in the plasma polymerized films were used to immobilize galactose ligand, which is a hepatocyte-specific ligand. Hepatocyte culture on these galactosylated scaffolds was further explored.
