Exceptional control on physical properties of a polymeric material through alcoholic solvent-mediated environment-friendly Michael addition reaction

Author affiliations

Abstract

Alcoholic solvents that are used as media for environment-friendly Michael addition reaction are strategically exploited to control various physical properties of a polymeric material, including shrinkage, flexibility and special wettability: adhesive and ultra-non-adhesive superhydrophobicity. An appropriate selection of the alcoholic solvent provided the material with highly flexible, durable and moldable superhydrophobic monolith, which can be even physically deformed (75%) repetitively without any negative impact on its physical or chemical integrity.
