Abstract

Adhesion force, quartz crystal microbalance (QCM), and attenuated total reflection infrared (ATR-IR) measurements revealed that native proteins weakly adsorbed onto poly(lactide) (PLA) stereocomplexes with 3 1 helical (β-form) crystals when compared with poly(L-lactide) (PLLA) homogeneous crystals with 10 3 helical (α-form) crystals. These observations suggest that substrate polymer polymorphs can be significant factors that determine protein-adsorptive properties.
