Facile fabrication of poly(glycidyl methacrylate)-b-polystyrene functional fibers under shear field and immobilization of hemoglobin

Abstract

poly (glycidyl methacrylate)-b-polystyrene (PGMA-b-PS) block copolymers were synthesized by two steps with 1, 1-diphenylethylene (DPE) as chain transfer reagent. The molecular weight and chemical structures of block copolymers were characterized by GPC, FTIR and NMR. Then PGMA-b-PS fibers were fabricated under shearing field using methanol as antisolvent and glycerin as the shear medium. The shear speed, concentration of block copolymer solution and ratios of methanol to glycerin were controlled and regulated. The morphologies of block copolymer fibers were investigated by SEM. Finally, immobilization of bovine hemoglobin on block copolymer fibers was carried out and it has potential application in blood substitutes.
