  1. 1. Surface Modification of Biomedical Polyurethanes

    Författare :Christina Freij-Larsson; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein adsorption.; surface morphology; adsorption; polymer blends; polymer grafting; amphiphilic polymers; poly ethylene oxide ; Surface modification; polyurethane; Polymer technology; biopolymers; Polymerteknik;

    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.
