The fabrication of polymeric materials with ordered submicron-size void
structures is potentially valuable for many applications such as catalysts,
separation and adsorbent media. This paper reports the preparation of macroporous
protein multilayer films with regular voids using silica nanospheres as
templates. Both monodisperse silica colloids and highly ordered assembly silica
multilayer films are used as templates to prepare microporous bovine serum
albumin multilayer films with ruleless and ordered submicron-sized voids.
Glutaraldehyde is used as a crosslinking agent to form a firm net-like protein
film on the surface of silica templates. The microporous protein film is obtained
after removing of silica templates. Compare with polymer film, protein film has
good biocompatibility and biodegradability which will be beneficial to its
biological applications.
