General description

Tetraethylene glycol dimethyl ether or tetraglyme is an organic aprotic colourless solvent with film forming ability.

Application

Tetraglyme coating was applied on glucose sensors, such as Nafion by RF to render it “non fouling” and enhancing linking of bio mimetic molecules to the surface. Tetraglyme helps in selective adsorption of proteins while promoting cell adhesion. Other general uses include as an electrolyte in lithium ion battery.

A novel sulfur/graphene nanosheet (S/GNS) composite was prepared via a simple ball milling of sulfur with commercial multi-layer graphene nanosheet, followed by a heat treatment. High-resolution transmission and scanning electronic microscopy observations showed the formation of irregularly interlaced nanosheet-like structure

Nonspecific protein adsorption, particularly fibrinogen (Fg), is thought to be an initiating step in the foreign body response (FBR) to biomaterials by promoting phagocyte attachment. In previous studies, we therefore prepared radiofrequency glow discharge (ethylene oxide)-like tetraglyme (CH(3)O(CH(2)CH(2)O)(4)CH(3)) coatings adsorbing

Previous studies have showed that radio-frequency plasma deposited tetraglyme coatings greatly reduced fibrinogen adsorption (Gamma(Fg)) from highly diluted plasmas (0.1 and 1%) and subsequent platelet adhesion under static conditions. In this study, the protein resistant properties of tetraglyme were re-examined

Polyethylene oxide (PEO) surfaces reduce non-specific protein and cell interactions with implanted biomaterials and may improve their biocompatibility. PEO-like polymerized tetraglyme surfaces were made by glow discharge plasma deposition onto fluorinated ethylene propylene copolymer (FEP) substrates and were shown to
