Due to the particular chemical properties of N-rich surfaces, they are successfully applied
both for cell adhesion [1] and covalent coupling of proteins in aqueous environments [2].
Effectiveness of such coatings in biochemistry strongly depends on the concentration of the amino
groups on surface, which in turn can be varied according to the used experimental methods for the
deposition of films. The most often used technics are based on the low pressure plasma [3,4].
However, the atmospheric pressure deposition is also becoming very popular [5,6]. The main aim of
my work is to evaluate the use of an atmospheric plasma jet source for the deposition of amino-rich
plasma polymer for biomedical application.
As a deposition system the special designed plasma jet manufactured by Dow Corning®
under the tradename SE-2100 PlasmaStream™ was used. In this jet the precursor was introduced
into the discharge by pneumatic nebulizers in the form of aerosolized droplets. The amino-rich
coatings were deposited by means of plasma polymerisation of the nitrogen-containing compounds
(e.g. Diaminocyclohexane (DACH). The thin films were deposited in an atmosphere of the inert gas
(pure He) and in the nitrogen containing gas mixture. The concentration of the amino functionality in
the prepared coatings has been estimated using XPS by means of the derivatization technique and
FTIR at CU. In addition the change of the chemistry of the films with deposition conditions was
monitored using surface energy measurement. The interaction of proteins such BSA with the coatings
monitored using spectroscopic ellipsometry, the aim being to determine how adherent protein
thickness was influenced by the surface chemistry of the amino rich polymer layer. Since the protein
adhesion is influenced by not only the surface chemistry and also by coating morphology the latter
was examined using optical profilometry, AFM and SEM. Comparison of amino rich plasma polymer
deposited at atmospheric pressure with films prepared at low pressure by RF sputtering of nylon in Ar
or Ar+N2 has been done.
