Acrylic acid grafted porous polycarbonate membrane with smart hydrostatic pressure response to pH

Author affiliations

Abstract

A smart “pH-hydrostatic pressure responsor” is fabricated by plasma-induced graft polymerization. Acrylic acid was grafted onto a polycarbonate porous membrane. By taking advantage of the conformational changes of polyacrylic acid chains in acidic and alkaline solutions, the grafted membrane exhibits hydrostatic pressure variation and reversible conversion to pH.
