Abstract

Protein adsorption characteristics and blood compatibility of the sol-gel derived titania has been examined by measuring activity of adsorbing bilirubin and protein in plasma as well as plasma clotting properties. It was suggested that the important factors for the specific protein adsorption activity were acid-base characteristics and pore size distribution of the gel due to the coexistence of anatase/rutile phases.
