Crosslinking PDMS brushes!

Our collaborative work with the Wulff group at UVic has finally been published in the Chemical Engineering Journal! We’ve found a way to crosslink inert PDMS brushes, one of the group’s favourite technologies that we’ve developed. Crosslinking improves the mechanical resilience of the brushes and maintains their omniphobic and anti-fouling properties. Great work Xiaoxiao and all!
