Abstract

Two polyphosphazenes were synthesized: Poly[bis(trifluoroethoxy) phosphazene] (TFE) and Poly[(methoxyethoxyethoxy)1.0(p-cresoxy)1.0 phosphazene] (PMPP). These materials were selected due to their properties in order to provide a conductive cell friendly substrate to couple cells to electrode plates (PMPP) and an isolative cell unfriendly polymer to coat the rest of the system (TFE). Materials properties were tested and analyzed using well known physicochemical methods and cell selectivity was tested using a human derived neuroblastoma cell line (SK-N-BE(2c)). Materials proved to behave as expected, opening the door for the use of polyphosphazenes in patterned neural network systems.
