Effect of Fractional Fluorination on the Properties of ATRP Surface-Initiated Poly(hydroxethyl methacrylate) Films

Acylation of a surface-initiated poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PHEMA) film with a perfluoroalkyl acid chloride (C7F15COCl) results in a highly blocking film with fluorocarbon side groups that orient at the air-film interface to produce an ultralow-energy surface. The kinetics of the acylation ste...
