Well-defined poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) based-dendrimers synthesized by click chemistry: enhanced crystallinity of PVDF and increased hydrophobicity of PVDF films

Author affiliations

Abstract

This study reports the preparation by click chemistry of a novel fluorinated dendrimer bearing PVDF branches and its characterization by several analytical methods including 1H, 13C, 31P and 19F NMR, diffusional NMR, SEC, DLS, ATG, DSC and HRTEM. As remarkable properties, this dendritic PVDF displayed crystallinity (HRTEM highlighted crystalline disc-like zones of ca. 5 nm) and a much higher hydrophobicity than both its precursors with the water contact angle (WCA) reaching 108°.
