let's talk about implants
i work in a lab that has mostly specialized in biologically inert non-fouling surfaces. basically, implants that don't need a workover every handful of years, and no need for blood thinners... i'm talking no rejection implants.
silicone is only good for some things and PEG/etc is no good, we all know that.
implants of any decent size usually require these things (cleaning / thinners) due to platelet / stuff attachment to their surfaces as the body tires to de-integrate with them.
do we have any chemists here? can anyone do click chemistry or ATRP grafting? if so, i have some interesting things for you guys to try out in your next implant attempt...
