Antifouling Surfaces and Materials: From Land to Marine by Feng Zhou

By Feng Zhou

This ebook reports the advance of antifouling surfaces and fabrics for either land and marine environments, with an emphasis on marine anti biofouling. It explains the diversities and intrinsic courting among antifouling in land and marine environments, that are according to superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity respectively. It covers quite a few issues together with biomimetic antifouling and self-cleaning surfaces, grafted polymer brushes and micro/nanostructure surfaces with antifouling homes, in addition to marine anti biofouling. Marine anti biofouling comprises either old biocidal compounds (tributyltin, copper and zinc) and present eco-friendly, non-toxic antifouling ideas. This publication is meant for these readers who're attracted to greedy the basics and functions of antifouling.

Feng Zhou is a professor on the nation Key Laboratory of stable Lubrication, Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics, chinese language Academy of Sciences.

Olefin Metathesis and Metathesis Polymerization, Second Edition

This booklet is a follow-up to Ivins Olefin Metathesis, (Academic Press, 1983). Bringing the traditional textual content within the box modern, this moment version is due to the speedy development within the box, sparked by means of the invention of diverse well-defined steel carbene complexes that could act as very effective initiators of all kinds of olefin metathesis response, together with ring-closing metathesis of acyclic dienes, enynes, and dienynes; ring-opening metathesis polymerizationof cycloalkenes, acyclic diene metathesis polymerization; and polymerization of alkynes, in addition to uncomplicated olefin metathesis.

Polybenzoxazines : Chemistry and Properties

Polybenzoxazine is a singular category of thermosetting fabric that belongs to the kin of addition-curable phenolic resins. it's a promising hot temperature polymer in view of its impressive thermal, actual, and mechanical houses which are helpful for his or her program in aerospace and microelectronics industries.

Polymers and Electromagnetic Radiation: Fundamentals and Practical Applications

The 1st a part of the publication bargains with the interplay of polymers with non-ionizing radiation within the frequency-range from sub-terahertz over infrared radiation to seen and ultraviolet gentle, whereas the second one half covers the interplay with ionizing radiation from the extraordinary ultraviolet to X-ray photons.

Example text

The natural high resistance to nonspecific protein adsorption is comparable to that of PEG-based materials [89]. Messersmith and colleagues reported a new class of synthetic antifouling macromolecules that mimics polypeptides attached to biomaterial surfaces for long-term resistance to fouling in the biological environment [39]. Peptidomimetic polymers consist of a short functional peptide domain containing alternate DOPA and lysine residues to adhere to surfaces, and have a N-substituted glycine (peptoid) oligomer of variable length which has a protein-like backbone with side chain derivatization on the amide nitrogen; the methoxyethyl side chains provide fouling resistance to surfaces and resembles the repeat unit of PEG, resulting in excellent protein resistance.

18 [82]. Besides, Brennan reported a method to fabricate the sharkskin-like surface structures on injection molding by picosecond laser ablation method [85]. In the self-cleaning area, Schumacher et al. analyzed the antibiofouling property of fish scale replica in detail, and they found that the topographies can significantly reduce spore settlement compared to a smooth surface. 16c. Baum et al. suggested that the self-cleaning mechanism for oil pollution and the biofouling is that the whale skin surface and the intercellular gel contain both polar and nonpolar functional groups, which effectively reduce the fouling in the short term and long term [86].
