Abstract: This work reports the development of new non-thrombogenic polymers based on the linear polymers of polyamidoamines (PAAs), having heparin binding ability, obtained by polyaddition of secondary amines to N,N′-methylene bis-acrylamide. PAAs could not be used directly in the making of blood-contacting materials due to their poor mechanical strength. In order to overcome this lacuna, copolymers of amidoamine with methylmethacrylate (MMA) were prepared. Characterization studies indicated that the PAAs have been suitably incorporated into the MMA matrix. The relative hydrophilic nature of the synthesized copolymers was established from the measurement of water contact angle. The heparinized copolymers showed significant improvement in non-thrombogenic characteristics.
