COF depends on the nature of the materials and surface roughness. Usually, ASTM D1894-14 is the most widely used method for COF measurement. This method involves a polymer sheet or film with a fixed weight on top. 1). The normal force in this test is equal to the gravity force of the weight. 1) Gu et al.  used ozone to pretreat a Pellethane® surface and later functionalized the surface with polyacrylic acid. 1. A modified COF measurement method for testing finished catheters was reported by Kazmierska .
12(b)). It was noted that after a prolonged aging process, predominant carbons were those from CdO ether bonds, suggesting that the surface was covered by copolymer 2. The degree of surface enrichment of PEO groups depends on not only the aging time but also the MW of the triblock copolymer. 01 “–” not detected. aValues detected by XPS. bValues detected by element determination.

However, after coating, another nitrogen peak appears at approximately 403 eV, indicating quaternary nitrogen from the phosphoryl choline moiety. Other evidence of the phosphoryl choline moiety at the surface is the appearance of the phosphorus peak at 135 eV. Zwitterionic groups such as phosphoryl choline and sulfonyl betaine can form a hydrated layer to prevent protein adsorption [48–51]. 9 Chemical structure of Reprinted with permission from Ref. .
