Abstract

Microstructural organization, resulting physical properties and biostability of PUs with soft segment chemistries ranging from PHMO to 80/20 PDMS/PHMO were investigated with a variety of experimental probes. The presentation will focus on our latest findings, particularly the role of PDMS in microphase separation and in improving biostability.
