The synthesis of a new segmented polyurethane containing quaternary ammonium groups in the side-chain is reported. The quaternization was carried out both on the polymer dissolved in an organic solvent and on polymer films. Polymeric films quaternized by both techniques were heparinized. The amount of bonded heparin, determined by spectrophotometry, was remarkably higher than previously described. Polymer quaternized in solution bonded more heparin than that heparinized directly on film. In vitro evaluations of antithrombogenicity by activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) carried out on the films confirmed these data. The polymers were also characterized by chemical, i.r., n.m.r., differential scanning calorimetry and viscometric techniques.
