Investigation of the Effect of Molecular Weight, Density, and Initiator Structure Size on the Repulsive Force between a PNIPAM Polymer Brush and Protein

Figure 12

Plot of the gap between periodically placed polymer brush structures versus the initiator structure size x; (a) below the LCST for different degrees of polymerization; (b) above the LCST for different degrees of polymerization; (c) below the LCST for different densities; (d) above the LCST for different density; (e) comparison for below the LCST and above the LCST for ; and (f) contor plot of the gap as a function of both and while density kept constsnt at 0.4.
