Synthesis and structureproperty behavior of polycaprolactone-polydimethylsiloxane-polycaprolactone triblock copolymers
Poly(ε-caprolactone)–polydimethylsiloxane–poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL-PDMS-PCL) triblock copolymers with a wide range of block lengths (1000–32,000 g/mol) were synthesized by the ring-opening polymerization of ε-caprolactone ...
Simple processes for the preparation of superhydrophobic polymer surfaces
Two simple processes; (i) spin-coating, and (ii) doctor blade coating of silica/polymer dispersions are described for the preparation of superhydrophobic polymer surfaces. To demonstrate the versatility and broad applicability ...
Superhydrophobic polymer surfaces: preparation, properties, and applications
(Smithers Rapra Technology, 2016)
Surface properties have critical roles in determination of the durability and overall performance of polymeric materials for applications in many fields. Recent investigations on naturally superhydrophobic surfaces such ...
From superhydrophilic to superhydrophobic: tunable wetting of polymer surfaces through the use of fumed silica
A simple process and a general method was developed for the preparation of polymeric materials with controlled surface wettability. Method is applicable to a wide range of polymeric materials, thermoplastic or thermoset. ...
