Polymer Brushes: Synthesis Characterization Applications

The greatest water contact angle (94F) and brush thickness (23 4 nm) were obtained using s-BuLi to activate the DPE initiator and TMEDA as an additive From this homopolymer surface isoprene was polymerized to generate a PS-b-PI diblock copolymer Typically homopolymer and diblock copolymer thicknesses were no greater than 25 nm Perhaps one of the most comprehensive "living" anionic

What are silicone hydrogel contacts?

Contact lenses made of silicone hydrogel can help alleviate dry eyes So if you currently experience dry eyes while wearing contacts you may want to ask your Optometrist if you are suited to wear silicone hydrogel contacts The technology behind silicone hydrogel contacts As its name indicates this type of contact lens is comprised of silicone and hydrogel materials Silicone is a chemical

"Click" Chemistry

Improving the wettability of and reducing the protein adsorption to contact lenses may be beneficial for improving wearer comfort Herein we describe a simple "click" chemistry approach to surface functionalize poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (pHEMA)-based contact lenses with hyaluronic acid (HA) a carbohydrate naturally contributing to the wettability of the native tear film

Dynamic wettability of pHEMA‐based hydrogel contact

Standard methods of contact angle analysis include sessile drop captive bubble and Wilhelmy plate techniques however these methodologies are not particularly well suited for assessing the wettability of the surfaces of formed hydrogel contact lenses This paper describes two methodologies that are adaptations of previously described techniques The maximum adherent force method is an
