Underwater bonding strength of marine mussel-inspired polymers containing DOPA-like units with amino groups

Abstract

It is widely accepted that the bonding strength of mussel protein is somehow related to the contained pyrocatechol groups. However, by comparing the bonding strengths of synthetic terpolymers before and after neutralization by a diamine, we found that the amino groups may have a great influence on the bonding strength, in addition to the pyrocatechol groups.
