Adhesion of protective coating appliques on contaminated aluminum surfaces
The goal of this research was to develop an appliquÃ© system to protect an aluminum surface previously coated with a RTV silicone rubber.

Two adhesion problems were studied in this project: 1) adhesion to the contaminated aluminum surface, and 2) adhesion to the protective film of the appliquÃ©. Adhesion can occur according to several mechanisms: physical adsorption, chemical bonding, diffusion, elec
Peptide-modified polymer for endothelialization
A functionalized polycarbonate material derived from tyrosine containing varyinglevels of free acid functionality along the backbone, poly(DTE-co-X%DT carbonate), hasbeen functionalized with a peptide to promote endothelial cell attachment and evaluatedas a potential synthetic vascular graft material. Lysine derivatives have been produced topromote the attachment of engineered peptides for promoting endothelialization.NMR has been used to analyze the initial structure of the poly(DTEC-co-X%DTC)
