|Abstract:||The surface of stainless steel was first modified by the silane coupling agent (SCA), (3-mercaptopropyl)trimethoxysilane. The silanized stainless-steel surface (SCA-SS surface) was subsequently activated by argon plasma and then subjected to UV-induced graft polymerization of poly(ethylene glycol)methacrylate (PEGMA). The chemical structures and composition of the pristine, silane-treated, plasma-treated and PEGMA graft-polymerized stainless-steel coupon surfaces were characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and attenuated total reflection-Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy. The graft polymerization of PEGMA onto the plasma-pretreated SCA-SS surface was studied with different argon plasma pretreatment time, macromonomer concentration, and UV graft polymerization time. In general, a brief plasma pretreatment, high PEGMA concentration, and long UV graft polymerization time readily resulted in a high graft concentration. The PEGMA graft-polymerized stainless-steel coupon (PEGMA-g-SCA-SS) with a high graft concentration, and thus a high PEG content, was found to be very effective in preventing bovine serum albumin and γ-globulin adsorption.
