In this paper we concentrated on the possibility of adopting molecular imprinting technology for the preparation of polymeric membranes imprinted with phosphatidylcholine, one of the main phospholipids found in the cell membrane and lipoproteins, via phase inversion, with the intention of applying this method in the ongoing research into the regression of atherosclerosis. The polymer matrix was based on poly(ethylene-co-vinyl alcohol) with an ethylene molar content of 44% and the amount of… CONTINUE READING
