Abstract

Heparin is an anticoagulant which is widely used during blood-dialysis. To now, there is not a commercial device able to “filter” heparin from blood after or during the medical treatment. Heparin can give, on life-long treatments, several health problems. We prepared siloxane-modified hybrid poly(aminoamides) which can be obtained from water solution. They shown good heparin absorption properties.
