Biocompatible coatings with high albumin affinity.


A process was developed to coat complex medical devices with a thin, transparent, biocompatible film. The film is based on silicone rubber (SR) but has higher albumin affinity than SR. Two polymer forms have been developed: one substitutes hydroxyl groups (OH), the other, 16 carbon acyl groups (C16) in the siloxane side chains. Oxymercuration/demercuration… (More)
