Paper Abstract

An effect of electron beam (EB) irradiation on wettability was studied for polypropylene for biomedical application. EB irradiation enhanced the wettability on polypropylene samples. To discuss the effect, the wettability was evaluated by using contact angle of sessile drop. EB irradiation decreased the contact angle. Based on ESR results, the effects of electron beam on the wettability were discussed. EB irradiation broke the weakly bonded pairs and formed the dangling bonds in polypropylene.
