This work reports the modification of thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) in order to enlarge their application range, for example, as biomaterials by increasing its hydrophilicity. A TPU was successfully modified by using three different strategies: ultra-violet irradiation (UV), gamma irradiation (GI) and interfacial modification (IM). The results suggested the possibility of modifying the polyurethane-based surface either with * Corresponding author. Tel.: +351 239798743; Fax: +351 239798703… CONTINUE READING
