Polyetlectrolye multilayer deposition on nickel modified with self-assembled monolayers of organophosphonic acids for biomaterials : electrochemical and spectroscopic evaluation

Sébastien Devillers, Jean-François Lemineur, V. S. Dilimon, Bastien Barthélémy, Joseph Delhalle, and Zineb Mekhalif. Abstract ABSTRACT: Layer-by-layer assembly of polyelectrolytes is an efficient method for the formation of functional thin films with the prospect of biomedical applications. Polyethyleneimine (PEI) is commonly used as an adhesion promoter but has been shown to be potentially cytotoxic and […]
