Abstract

Layer-by-Layer (LbL) self-assembly has been investigated for several decades. However, the conventional LbL method has performance problems on the chair-side caused by its cumbersome and time-consuming process. Thus, we investigate a new LbL self-assembly technique for the fast and high efficient preparation process based on the brush. The multilayer films fabricated by simple sequential brushing of polyelectrolyte solutions are compared to the classical dipping method. We characterize the multilayer films by characteristics such as their morphology and thickness, and compare them against those of the classic method by profilometry, atomic force microscopy. We prepare multilayer films with biocompatible polyelectrolytes, chitosan, and alginate incorporated with a hydrophobic drug carrier. For the drug carrier, a poly(ethylene glycol)-block-poly(ϵ-caprolactone) (PEG-b-PCL) block copolymer is introduced to construct micelles containing dexamethasone, which is a well-known osteogenesis-inducing drug. The hydrogen bonding behavior between adjacent layers and micelles is investigated by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Additionally, we analyze the release profiles, degradation profiles and toxicity of the multilayer films for biomedical applications. From these results, we can identify the brushing LbL method as a reliable and more efficient multilayer film-construction process compared to conventional dipping LbL, especially for practical applications in dental and clinical situations.
