Thin Thermoresponsive Polymer Films for Cell Culture: Elucidating an Unexpected Thermal Phase Behavior by Atomic Force Microscopy

Utility of poly-N-isopropylacrylamide (PNIPAM) and its extra hydrophobic copolymers with┬áN–tert-butylacrylamide (NtBA) as helps for cell sheets has been validated in quite a few research. The binary programs of those polymers with water are characterised by a decrease important resolution temperature (LCST) in a physiologically favorable area. Upon reducing the temperature under the LCST, PNIPAM chains […]
