Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Diblock copolymers composed of 2-methoxyethylacrylate (MEA) and 2-hydroxyethylmethacrylate were newly prepared by anion living polymerization. ESCA analysis showed the segregation of PMEA segment to the top surfaces of the copolymers, whereas contact angle results suggested that in wet state the surfaces were covered with PHEMA segment. Platelet adhesion test showed that these polymers had excellent blood compatibility.
