In this work, fibrin was used as a substrate to graft 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) by free radical polymerization using potassium persulfate and sodium metabisulfite as redox initiators. The extent of grafting the synthetic polymer on the biopolymer was studied under various experimental conditions, and the optimum factors for affording maximum… CONTINUE READING
