Download Antifouling Surfaces and Materials: From Land to Marine by Feng Zhou PDF

By Feng Zhou

This e-book studies the improvement of antifouling surfaces and fabrics for either land and marine environments, with an emphasis on marine anti biofouling. It explains the diversities and intrinsic courting among antifouling in land and marine environments, that are in keeping with superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity respectively. It covers quite a few themes together with biomimetic antifouling and self-cleaning surfaces, grafted polymer brushes and micro/nanostructure surfaces with antifouling houses, in addition to marine anti biofouling. Marine anti biofouling contains either ancient biocidal compounds (tributyltin, copper and zinc) and present eco-friendly, non-toxic antifouling techniques. This booklet is meant for these readers who're attracted to greedy the basics and functions of antifouling.

Feng Zhou is a professor on the kingdom Key Laboratory of strong Lubrication, Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics, chinese language Academy of Sciences.

Copyright 2006, Taylor & Francis) However, strategies for generating the nontoxic and nonadhesive coatings are of particular interest in the development of the bio-friendly marine coatings [3, 6, 12, 100]. As mentioned above, PEG-modified surfaces are known for their resistance to protein adsorption, and are also demonstrated to resist the settlement and release of marine fouling organisms, which rely on a steric repulsion of the adhesive molecule caused by the hydrated PEG chains [101].
