Substrate-independent approach for polymer brush growth by surface atom transfer radical polymerization.

Teare, D. O. H. and Barwick, D. C. and Schofield, W. C. E. and Garrod, R. P. and Ward, L. J. and Badyal, J. P. S. (2005) 'Substrate-independent approach for polymer brush growth by surface atom transfer radical polymerization.', Langmuir., 21 (24). pp. 11425-11430.


A simple method for growing polymer brushes by atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) off solid surfaces has been devised. This entails pulsed plasmachemical deposition of a halogen-containing initiator layer, followed by either organic or aqueous phase controlled surface polymerization. The wide-scale applicability of this approach is exemplified by functionalizing flat substrates, microbeads, and nonwoven textiles.
