Project: Investigation of physical surface parameters of polyurethane polymers in relation to adherence of blood constituents and bacteria.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
Investigation of adherence of cells, bacteria and other blood constituents as a determining factor regarding the biocompatibility of polyurethane polymers. Formulation of a physicochemical model for cell adhesion in terms of interfacial free engergy,chemical potentials and surface charge density. Evaluation of newly synthesized biomaterials in coöperation with the partners in synthesis research.
