Example text

Iodine isotope was chosen as the radiolabeling agent instead of 14C because 125I is a γ emitter that requires a much simpler instrument for detection. Another reason is that iodine isotope has much shorter half-life (60 days); thus it is much less hazardous [126]. Iodination radiolabeling is a gold standard for protein adsorption because of its extreme high sensitivity (ng/cm2) and because it is a wellestablished method with various commercial labeling products available. 23 Iodination on tyrosyl group.

When electron beams hit the sample surface, the sample emits X-rays and three kinds of electrons: primary backscattered electrons, secondary electrons, and Auger electrons. In SEM, only primary backscattered electrons and secondary electrons are collected and are used to generate images of the sample. Just like XPS, a high vacuum environment is required to allow free passage of electron beams. However, recent developments in environmental SEM allow samples to be analyzed under low vacuum in high humidity.

SIMS can also provide more detail on chemical structure, but comparable quantitative information is only available via XPS [57,58]. Ratner et al. [59] have done detailed SIMS and XPS studies on aromatic polyurethanes with different soft segments. In this paper, polyethylene glycol (PEG)/Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI)/ethylene diamine (ED), PTMO/MDI/ED, and polypropylene glycol (PPG)/MDI/ED polyurethanes were synthesized. Using SIMS, the three different polyurethanes were easily discriminated by their soft segments.
