Permeability of Urea in N-Carboxymethyl Chitosan-Poly (Vynilalcohol) Blend Membranes for Hemodialysis

R. A. Lusiana, D. Siswanta, Mudasir, and T. Hayashita
Abstract—A series of membranes are prepared by solvent drying method, which were composed of N-carboxymehtyl chitosan blended with poly(vinyl alcohol) [N-CMC/PVA]. The N-CMC/PVA membranes showed improved strength properties and permeability for low-molecular weight compounds. This novel membranes exhibited good permeability properties for small molecules also indicated a decrease in protein adsorption on the surface of membrane. The structure and the morphology of the resulting membranes were characterized by FTIR. NMR, elementary analysis and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

Index Terms—Membranes, n-carboxymethyl chitosan, hemodialysis, permeability.
