Aminated poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) surfaces were charcterised for their use as substrates for the attachment of biologically active molecules. Amines of different chain lengths, tetraethylenementamine, triehtylenetetra-amine (TTETA) and diethylenetriamine (DETA), were investogated. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy was used to show that each amine introduced a comparable amoun tof nitrogen (5 atoms %) to the PET surface.
