Surface-grafted poly-γ-benzyl-glutamate brushes with different secondary structures were prepared and used to study the influence of main-chain chirality on cell adhesion behaviors. Cells could adhere and proliferate better on L-type poly-γ-benzyl-glutamate grafted surfaces than on the enantiomers.
