The affinity between a vancomycin polymer (3) and cell wall intermediate mimics of vancomycin resistant bacteria (VRE) was determined by use of surface plasmon resonance (SPR). The increased affinity of 3 over monomeric vancomycin derivatives 1 and 2 suggests the importance of tighter binding to VRE surfaces in the enhanced antibacterial activities of 3.
