Continuous thermal control of hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity changes of hybrid films and of their directionality: Kinetics and substrate effects.

Abstract

A successful methodology for obtaining hybrid films which allow thermal triggering and continuous, irreversible, control of their hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity nature was developed. Two types of poly(dimethylsiloxane)-silica (PDMS@SiO2) films were prepared for that purpose: A hydrophilic film in which the thermal treatment causes an irreversible gradual… (More)
