A mussel-inspired adhesive with stronger bonding strength under underwater conditions than under dry conditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

A mussel-inspired adhesive based on a polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) backbone shows a much higher bonding strength under underwater/seawater conditions than under dry conditions. We reasoned that besides catechol moieties, the structure and properties of the backbone also play an important role in the realization of strong underwater bonding.
