New publication in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces

PhD student Jordan Brito’s research was recently accepted to ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces!

The article, titled “Hierarchically Structured, All-Aqueous-Coated Hydrophobic Surfaces with pH-Selective Droplet Transfer Capability“, is now available to read online. In this article, hydrophobic coatings with pH-responsive droplet capture were created using an all-aqueous layer-by-layer deposition technique. The fluorinated anionic polyphosphazenes used in these coatings endowed the surfaced with a novel combination of hydrophobicity with pH sensitivity, allowing for pH-sensitive droplet transfer.

Congratulations, Jordan!
