Platelet adhesion to phophatidylcholine (PC)-grafted silica materials was analyzed as a function of the interfacial structure and orientation of the polymeric material using cold-stage X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The results suggest that the reduction in platelet adhesion to PC-silica material is caused by the presence of immobilized PC molecules at the aqueous interface.
