The chemistry of surfaces directly impacts many important properties, such as water repellency, adhesion, and lubrication. By manipulating the chemistry of a surface or coating, different properties can be achieved. In our research, we examine the properties and different preparation methods of surfaces for specific applications. These include polymer coatings which resist bacterial and fungal growth (anti-fouling) or vapor-phase reactions for conformal coatings on textured surfaces. An additional topic includes the preparation of high-temperature stable silicone polymers. These polymers are capable of withstanding extreme conditions from temperatures below - 100 °C to over 500 °C. We are particularly interested in the role of molecular composition of cross-linked materials on their physical and chemical properties.
