Cell Attachment and Protein Adsorption to Polypyrrole thin Films

  • Joyce Y. Wong (a1), Robert S. Langer (a1) and Donald E. Ingber (a2)
Abstract

Thin films of polypyrrole were synthesized using both chemical oxidative and electrochemical methods. The resulting oxidized films were characterized by UV/VIS spectroscopy, contact angle and conductivity measurements. In vitro studies suggest that extracellular matrix molecules, such as fibronectin, adsorb efficiently onto polypyrrole thin films and that 3T3 Balb/c mouse fibroblasts attach and spread normally on polypyrrole.
