AbstractHydroxyapatite (HA) hybridized poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-co-acrylic acid (PNIPAM-co-AAc) hydrogel on thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) were successfully prepared via photocatalytic polymerization technique. Low temperature plasma processing of HMDSZ and O2 plasma were deposition on substrate. The HA/hydrogel were stabilized by HA of which the wettability was modified by calcium nitrate and ammonium phosphate dibasic. The HA gradually increases with the increase of time cycles. The deposition of organic silicone group by the HMDSZ on the TPU substrate is hydrophobic surface. When deposition of O2, the water contact angles (WCA) was changed to <10° and surface hydrophilicity. The materials were characterized by OM, SEM, FT-IR, XPS and XRD. The results showed that the NIPAM: AAc (1:1 mol) polymers possess macropores ranging from 2 to 20 μm, and their large numbers of carboxyl groups and hydroxyl groups result in a favorable adsorption capacity for HA. Swelling studies indicated that NIPAM: AAc (1:1 mol) was 446 ± 0.3%. This work provided a promising alternative method for the fabrication of polymer materials with tunable and interconnected pores structures for the HA.
