Abstract: In the present study, low surface energy perfluorodecyl acrylate (PFDA) coatings and their copolymer coatings with diethylene glycol dimethyl ether (DEGDME) (i.e. PFDA-co-DEGDME) have been deposited through plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) onto thermanox coverslips in a low pressure tubular inductively coupled RF plasma reactor. The influence of plasma parameters on surface chemical properties of the coatings were investigated by using fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and water contact angle (WCA). The protein repellent properties of the plasma polymer coatings have been investigated using quartz crystal microbalance (QCM).
