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 ...
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. ...
