[47]. 11 Synthesis route of oligomeric polyurethane with terminal phosphorous choline groups. Reprinted with permission from Ref. [52]. 11) [52,53]. The key to preventing protein adsorption is to have phosphorous choline groups at the polymer surface. To achieve this goal, PU–FPC is synthesized by putting fluorocarbon and phosphorous choline groups together because fluorine has a much lower surface energy and has a great tendency to concentrate at Surface characterization techniques 33 the polymer/air interface.
