Coating of polydopamine on polyurethane open cell foams to design soft structured supports for molecular catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

Polydopamine-coated polyurethane open cell foams are used as structured supports for molecular catalysts through the covalent anchoring of alkoxysilyl arms by the catechol groups of the mussel-inspired layer. This strong bonding prevents their leaching. No alteration of the mechanical properties of the flexible support is observed after repeated uses of the catalytic materials.
