Abstract

This work describes the different durations of surface confinement of adhered mammalian cells by monolayers comprised of enantiomers of bio-inert polyol-terminated alkanethiols. Enhanced resistance to protein adsorption and cell adhesion is obtained on monolayers formed by a racemic mixture of the enantiomeric alkanethiols.
