Abstract: The permeability of cellulose triacetate membrane coated activated charcoal is enhanced by treatment with KOH. The adsorption data for creatinine in aqueous solution before and after deacetylation are given. In order to study the usefulness of hemoperfusion associated with dialysis for removal of uremic toxins, some experiments were performed on the adsorption by coated and deacetylated charcoal of molecules of various molecular weights (from 113 to 40,000). Although the adsorption capacity of uncoated charcoa…
