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.
