In this work, polydimethylsiloxane was activated with oxygen plasma and treated with silanes bearing ethylene imine units. Hyaluronic acid was then grafted covalently onto the aminated surfaces. The influence of silane structure on surface amination was assessed and the influence of the modification on surface physiochemical properties and protein adsorption of modified polydimethylsiloxane were investigated. Collagen type I was conjugated onto the modified polydimethylsiloxane to improve its cyto-compatibility for neural applications. In vitro cultivation of rat pheochromocytoma cells on the bioactive polydimethylsiloxane showed a significant increase in cell growth and differentiation. The potential applications of the bio-functionalized polydimethylsiloxane in cochlear implant electrode arrays were discussed.
