Paper Abstract

Fourier Transform Attenuated Total Reflection Infrared Spectroscopy (ATR/FTIR) was used for surface characterization of some commercial materials used in the biomedical field [polyurethane (PU), plasticized polyvinylchloride (PVC), glass, polytetrafluoroethylene (Goretex) and polyethyleneterephthalate (Dacron)] coated with a well-characterized heparin-complexing biomaterial (PUPA) based on polyurethane and poly(amido-amine) components. In particular, difference spectroscopy was used to analyze the coating-substrate interaction to which the material stability is related, and the heparin-material surface binding.
