Multimodal underwater adhesion using self-assembled Dopa-bearing ABA triblock copolymer networks

Author affiliations

Abstract

Self-assembled mechanically robust Dopa-bearing triblock copolymer networks improve underwater adhesion through both energy dissipation and interfacial bonding. Polymer networks that incorporate energy dissipating motifs could improve the performance of high-performance wet adhesives that only use interfacial bonds.
