pH-Responsive Random Copolymer Films with Amine Side Chains

Abstract

We have designed pH-responsive copolymer films that consist of polymethylene (PM) with dilute randomly distributed side chains terminated with dimethylamine groups. The films are grown on gold surfaces by (1) exposure to an ether solution of diazomethane and ethyl diazoacetate to produce a random copolymer Au[(CH2)A-(CHCO2Et)B] (denoted as PM-CO2Et, A . B… (More)
