Platelet adhesion-resistance of titanium substrate with mussel-inspired adhesive polymer bearing phosphorylcholine group

Publication year: 2012 Source: Applied Surface Science, Available online 16 February 2012 Ye Yao, Kyoko Fukazawa, Wenyong Ma, Kazuhiko Ishihara, Nan Huang To make improvement of hemocompatibility on the titanium (Ti) substrate, mussel-inspired adhesive polymer (PMDP) with both catechol groups for surface anchoring and phosphorylcholine groups for obtaining biocompatibility was synthesized. Only 10 second-immersion of Ti substrate into an aqueous solution of PMDP resulted in reliable coating, because the coating was stable during one month rinsing
