Progress latest antifouling self-repairing material

Material may be prevented from fouling the surface of biological, inorganic and organic substances attached, are widely used in many fields. According to the size of the surface energy of the anti-fouling material, it can be divided into low surface energy material (e.g., silicones and fluoropolymers) and a high surface energy material (e.g., PEG and zwitterionic polymers). The antifouling materials of different structures, may be divided into the following five categories: single layer polymer brush, coatings, gels, and liquid injection porous surface (SLIPS). 自修复防污材料的最新研究进展 any antifouling material properties will decline in the course, how to prolong the service life is important, so has the anti-fouling material (SHAF) self-healing function of widespread concern researchers. Mechanism of self-repairing material may antifouling divided into two categories:

① reversible interaction based on chemical / physical; ② the self-repairing material embedded in a matrix agent.

The results presented in

Sichuan University Wang Zhanhua , summer and Health and Wageningen University Han Zuilhof cooperation studied antifouling self-repairing material progress at home and abroad for a summary, according to the different self-repair mechanism, they will self repair fouling material is divided into three categories: surface-based antifouling material supply self-repairing, self-repairing material interaction based on dynamic antifouling covalent or non-covalent, self-repair mechanism of the two combined together antifouling materials. They then summed up potential applications antifouling self-healing material comprising an injectable hydrogel and oil / water separation. Finally, they looked to the future developments in the field that nine aspects of the design of new materials, multiscale research fouling processes and the preparation of anti-fouling material 3D printing technologies should be further studied. 自修复防污材料的最新研究进展 antifouling self-repairing material and self-healing mechanism antifouling

自修复防污材料的最新研究进展 [123 ] Figure 2. the three main types of self-healing anti-fouling materials. After the first type material (referred to as a surface Replenishment) good flexibility, small scratches may be repaired, repairing scratches:
Researchers self-repair mechanism depending on surface material will be divided into three SHAF reinstate material antifouling properties; the second material (known as dynamic covalent or non-covalent interactions type) can repair damaged larger, then need to be fully restored by surface recombination of material; third category material (referred to as self-healing double) combines the advantages of both types of materials, not only repair scratches nm / [mu] m, can also repair large areas of material wear.

The first material (surface Replenishment) low surface energy material of the self-healing can be achieved in three ways: ① redirection, ② and ③ from the migration of low surface energy component moved to a new air interface.

To further improve the investigators later antifouling property, the preparation of nanostructured PMAF17 fluoropolymer brushes. After we found that the fluorinated polymer grafted to the brush nanostructured silicon surface, which enhance the ability of anti-fouling, this is because the silicon surface roughness increases nanostructured material changes from hydrophobic to superhydrophobic. After air plasma damage, the water contact angle of the material is reduced from 152 ° to 135 °, after heat treatment for 30 minutes, the contact angle of full recovery, polymer brushes flat PMAF17 repair time is 2 hours, nanostructured, only need to 0.5 hours, which is the distance between the brush after structuring polymer increases, resulting in easier recombinant heated polymer segment.
