Abstract This paper reviews our current activities of developing polyether urethane urea membranes for hemodialysis application. It is observed that the processing parameters such as precipitation medium, precipitation temperature etc. can influence the porosity of the membrane and subsequently the permeability property. Polyurethane/poly(methyl methacrylate) blended membranes have also shown high permeability. All the membranes are subjected to different sterilization processes and the pore sizes before and after sterilization are determined. The changes in the pore size due to sterilization seems to effect the permeability.
