Polyurethane (PU) with three different functional groups: carboxyl, hydroxyl and sulphonyl group on its molecular structure were synthesised in this work. The synthesised material suppresses blood clotting and exhibits anticoagulant characteristics due to the presence of the important anionic groups. The synthesised PU was blended with polyethersulphone (PES) and fabricated into flat-sheet membrane to study the physico-chemical and biocompatibilityproperties of the PES membrane for blood purification application. PES-PU flat-sheet membranes were fabricated via the dry-wet phase separation technique. Different loading of PU (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5%) blended with…..
