Tailoring the wetting properties of thiolene microfluidic materials

Author affiliations

Abstract

A post functionalization method for the control of the wettability of thiolene resins of the NOA family is presented. Treatment of open model surfaces or closed microchannels with chlorosilane derivatives resulted in dramatic changes in the behaviour of droplets and streams contacting the surfaces. The experimental findings are confirmed by the fabrication of a Y-junction device that works as a passive valve for water streams.
