Sammanfattning : The aim of the this thesis was surface modification of a biomedical polyurethane (PUR), Pellethane 2363-80AE*, to improve the biocompatibility. Surfaces modified by poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) were prepared either by grafting PEO covalently at the PUR surface by a two-step reaction, or by using amphiphilic polymers containing PEO as the hydrophilic part.

Sammanfattning : Degradable polymers have gained an increased attention in the field of biomedical applications over the past decades, for example in tissue engineering. One way of improving the biocompatibility of these polymers is by chemical surface modification, however the risk of degradation during the modification procedure is a limiting factor. LÄS MER
3. Nanocellulose for Biomedical Applications : Modification, Characterisation and Biocompatibility Studies
Sammanfattning : In the past decade there has been increasing interest in exploring the use of nanocellulose in medicine. However, the influence of the physicochemical properties of nanocellulose on the material´s biocompatibility has not been fully investigated. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The interest in new environmentally friendly cellulose‐based productshas increased tremendously over the last years. At the same time theSwedish forest industry faces new challenges in its strive to increase the utilization of cellulose fibers in high‐value end‐products. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Today, the growing and aging population, and the rise of new global threats on human health puts an increasing demand on the healthcare system and calls for preventive actions. To make existing medical treatments more efficient and widely accessible and to prevent the emergence of new threats such as drug-resistant bacteria, improved diagnostic technologies are needed.
