Course Description

This lecture aims at showing that the key role played by the surface of materials in the issues related to the interfaces between solids and biological environment (biointerfaces). These issues are mainly in the biomedical context but also, more widely, for any innovative systems implying surfaces and biomolecules (biosensors, biofilms in food industry, biocorrosion…). This course implies the following items: -Introduction: the surface = a complex material (structure, composition, model surfaces, real surfaces -Biointerfaces where all biological processes occur -Dedicated physico-chemical characterization techniques: in situ real time ones, UHV techniques, combination of techniques morphology and composition… -Different examples of surface reactivities from amine acid reactions to protein non specific and specific interactions -Interactivity on specific topics: understanding the quantitative approach

Competences

the student will take into account the outermost layers in a materials question. The student will know the principles, advantages and drawbacks of a certain number of characterization techniques of solid surfaces/materials. Quantification and qualitative approaches will alternatively proposed by the students when discussing a biointerface characterization strategy. Identifying the properties of biomolecules adsorption, and impact on further reactions, modelizing an experiment to understand surface reaction mechanisms in the frame of biomaterials.
