标题:Simple Thermal Pretreatment Strategy to Tune Mechanical and Antifouling Properties of Zwitterionic Hydrogels

 

AbstactZwitterionic hydrogels are promising biomaterials because of their high water content, three-dimensional network structure, and antifouling property. However, it still remains unclear about how mechanical properties of zwitterionic hydrogels affect their antifouling property. In this work, we propose a simple, thermal-pretreatment method to fabricate poly(sulfobetaine methacrylate) (pSBMA) hydrogels with varied mechanical properties that can be readily tuned by thermal pretreatment time and cross-linker density, as well as to correlate their mechanical property with antifouling property. The resulting thermal-treated pSBMA hydrogels show significantly enhanced mechanical properties with tunable compressive modulus and elastic modulus as compared to the untreated hydrogels. A combination of ELISA investigations and short-term cell adhesion assays also confirm that pSBMA hydrogels exhibit superior antifouling properties to resist protein adsorption and cell adhesion. Further analysis shows a linear inversion correlation between elastic modulus and protein adsorption of pSBMA hydrogels, i.e., the hydrogel with the higher elastic modulus exhibits the lower protein adsorption (the better antifouling property). This work not only provides a simple thermal-pretreatment strategy for fabricating pSBMA hydrogels, but also demonstrates multifunctional properties of the pSBMA hydrogels, which possess a great potential to fulfill some biomedical applications
