Study of blood compatible polymers. III. Copolymers of N-benzyl, N-(2-hydroxyethyl) acrylamide and 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate.

Copolymerization of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and N-benzyl, N-(2-hydroxyethyl) acrylamide (BENAAm) was carried out at different mole ratios of the monomers to obtain copolymers of varying composition. BENAAm content of the copolymers varies between 13 and 70%. Investigation of the interaction of rabbit platelets with these polymer surfaces showed… CONTINUE READING
