Paper Esther and Andriy out in Langmuir

Esther and Andriy’s joint paper on the design, synthesis and characterisation of so-called bottlebrush coatings, based on a powerful combination of poly(N-(2-hydroxypropyl)methacrylamide) [poly(HPMA)] – known for its antifouling properties – and poly(L-lysine) (PLL) – selected for its ability to strongly adhere to surfaces – has been accepted for publication in Langmuir. Three routes to prepare antifouling coatings were developed by Esther and Andriy, and evaluated in terms of ease of synthesis, scalability, ease of characterization, and a preliminary investigation of their antifouling performance. The full paper can be read here.
