Abstract

Sorption processes of small biomolecules into biocompatible polymers, poly(2-methoxy acrylate) (PMEA) and poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PHEMA), were investigated using time-resolved in-situ ATR-IR spectroscopy. Different hydration structures of PMEA were observed when small biomolecules were introduced as a form of buffer solutions into the polymer film. These solutions might influence the biocompatibility of PMEA since hydration structures of biocompatible polymers are important for their functions. The mechanism of sorption and dehydration processes of polymers will be discussed in detail using time-resolved IR spectra.
