γ-Methacryloxypropyltrimethoxysilane (γ-MPS) molecules were grafted on silicone elastomer by emulsion polymerization. Fibroblast and osteoblastic cells were cultured to examine cytocompatibility of the grafted surface. A greater number of cells grew on the grafted silicone, even forming a cell layer, than on the original silicone. Moreover, the cultured cells were agglomerated on the latter though they adhered well. Thus the γ-MPS grafting was concluded to improve cytocompatibility of silicone.
