|Abstract:||Gold surfaces were first treated in an alkanethiol solution to form self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). The thiolated Au surface was then subjected to Ar plasma pretreatment, followed by air exposure and UV-induced graft polymerization of poly(ethylene glycol) methacrylate (PEGMA) macromonomer. In comparison with the 3-mercaptopropionic acid-2-ethylhexyl ester (MPAEE) SAM, the (3-mercaptoproply)trimethoxysilane (MPTMS) SAM on Au exhibited higher stability under the conditions of Ar plasma pretreatment. The graft concentration of the PEGMA polymer on SAM-modified Au surface increased with increasing PEGMA macromonomer concentration and UV-graft polymerization time. The modified-Au surfaces were characterized by X-ray spectroscopy (XPS), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and water contact angle measurement. The Au surface with a high concentration of grafted PEGMA polymer could completely repel protein adsorption and platelet adhesion.|
