Abstract

We developed a method for fabricating poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) nanostructures using capillary lithography mediated UV exposure. In comparison to unstructured, planar PEG films, the hydrophobicity was enhanced on PEG nanostructures presumably due to embedded air in the nanostructures. Proteins and cells were tested to examine the effects of the modification of surface properties on protein adsorption and cell adhesion.
