Collection description

This data set contains the raw data used to produce our paper "Plasma Polymerisation Using Helium Atmospheric-Pressure Plasma Jet with Heptylamine Monomer" published in Plasma Processes and Polymers. The data contains water contact angle, XPS, AFM, and cell culture data. Atmospheric-pressure plasma jets can be used to modify surfaces in a spatially-defined manner. Operating these jets in air is an efficient surface modification tool, however the resulting surface chemistries are limited by the plasma gases. In this study we demonstrate that plasma polymerisation with heptylamine on polystyrene surfaces, using an atmospheric pressure plasma jet, can enable mammalian cell attachment and growth. In addition, the plasma polymerisation with heptylamine, in a helium carrier-gas, altered the spatially-defined treatment area in comparison to treatment with a helium plasma alone.
