To optimize the surface biocompatibility of the intravascular catheter, an amphiphilic coupling-polymer of stearyl poly (ethylene oxide) -co- 4,4'-methylene diphenyl diisocyanate-co- stearyl poly (ethylene oxide), for short MSPEO, was specially designed as the surface modifying additive (SMA). The blend of MSPEO in chitosan was coated on the outer wall of… CONTINUE READING
