Polymer Micro and Nanografting

Process for the generation of structured polymer brushes on polymer surfaces

  1. Polymer films are first exposed to EUV radiation, leading to a pattern of radicals near the surface of the polymer.
  2. The samples are then immersed into solutions of monomers and degassed to remove oxygen.
  3. Heating initiates the graft polymerization of the polymer brush.
