Two types of random copolymers (poly(MEA-co-HEMA) and poly(MEMA-co-HEMA) ware prepared, where MEMA and HEMA stand for 2-methoxyethylmethacrylate and 2-hydroxyethylmethacrylate, respectively. These copolymers were characterized from the view point of ESCA, contact angle, DSC, and platelet adhesion. The surface compositions of copolymers agreed with their bulk commotions in dry state, and contact angle results suggested no segregation. DSC analysis showed that MEMA based copolymer had no freezing bound water in the composition range from 100 to 60 mol% while MEMA based copolymer had it. Evaluations of blood compatibility for these polymers were carried out.
