Medical-grade polydimethylsiloxane elastomer was subjected to low-powered plasma treatment in the presence of four different gases: O(2), Ar, N(2) and NH(3). Changes to the surface chemistry immediately after processing and the stability of the treatments following ageing in phosphate buffered saline or air for up to 1 month were investigated using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and dynamic contact angle analysis. Changes in surface morphology were assessed using optical microscopy and atomic… CONTINUE READING
