Thermo-responsive anionic terpolymer brushes with high selectivity for proteins were prepared though surface-initiated ATRP. Utilizing these terpolymer brushes, pure lysozyme was successfully separated from egg-white. Thus, the prepared thermo-responsive terpolymer brush is an effective separation tool for the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries that produce valuable proteins.
