How to add functionality to polymeric interfaces

Monday, 10 September 2012

Post-polymerization modification is a simple and effective method to add complex functionality to a polymeric interface. A wide variety of click reactions have been utilized as a means of post-polymerization functionalization on surface-bound polymers to tune interfacial properties, such as friction, wettability, and adhesion

Patterning surfaces with spatial control of chemical functionality has also been obtained through orthogonal or sequential click reactions. Rachelle M. Arnold, N. Eric Huddleston and Jason Locklin from the University of Georgia, USA highlight in a the progress in post-polymerization modification of polymers covalently attached to a surface, focusing on the design of functional interfaces in terms of the various reactive functional groups. The paper has been published in the latest issue of Journal of Materials Chemistry (2012,22, 19357-19365).
