Polysiloxane based devices are frequently used in medical and analytical systems containing biopolymers such as proteins, peptide nucleic acids, polyamides. Although silicones are mainly known for their chemical inertness in living systems, physical adsorption does occur. This is sometimes favorable, for example in gas chromatography, but most of the cases it is a serious obstacle of the proper application. These interactions have been studied by molecular docking.
