(Figure Presented) Two different types of peptide with high specificity for sPS. Phage libraries of random heptamer peptides were applied to syndiotactic polystyrene (sPS) film surfaces. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays with phage clones and a library quantitatively revealed greater apparent binding constants of clones to the target polystyrene than to atactic and isotactic polystyrenes. The clones also recognized the presence or absence of complexed solvents in the target films.
