Poly(ethyleneoxyde) (PEO) is utilized for repression of protein adsorption in a variety of biomedical and technological situations. The customary analysis of the interactions between proteins and PEO models the PEO as a simple polymer comprising monomers having a single state. We review the evidence suggesting that such analysis should allow for multiple and interconverting monomeric states.
