Abstract

Interaction of bovine serum albumin (BSA) with poly(lactic acid) (PLA) layers mixed with poly(ethylene oxide)-poly(propylene oxide)-poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO-PPO-PEO) triblock copolymers (Pluronic) at air/solution interfaces was studied by the Langmuir balance technique. Wettability of the mixed PLA-Pluronic system was characterized in the form of a transferred one-layer Langmuir-Blodgett film, and considerable hydrophilization was obtained for all of the Pluronics (6400, 6800, 10500, and 12700) applied here. The density of PEO chains in the monolayer and hence the coverage of PLA was controlled by the composition and the compression of the mixed monolayers. Tensiometric investigations revealed that a significant reduction of BSA adsorption/penetration was achieved by applying the Pluronic 6800 and 12700 with long PEO blocks for hydrophilization of PLA. Interaction of BSA with the modified PLA monolayer depended on the density and length of the PEO chains. The surface morphological characteristics of the films determined by atomic force microscopy were in good correlation with the results of BSA interaction. The average roughness of the polymer LB layer was high due to BSA penetration into the PLA film, while smooth surfaces with small roughness were obtained when the PLA layer was modified by Pluronic 6800.
