      Abstract:

      This work describes the different durations of surface   confinement of adhered mammalian cells by monolayers comprised of   enantiomers of bio-inert polyol-terminated alkanethiols. Enhanced   resistance to protein adsorption and cell adhesion is obtained on   monolayers formed by a racemic mixture of the enantiomeric   alkanethiols.
