  • Patent number: 8871881
    Abstract: The invention at hand concerns hydrophobic polymer surfaces, in particular superhydrophobic polymer surfaces, comprising at least one homo- or copolymer, which comprises at least one side chain with at least one fluoro-substituted aryl group. Furthermore, the invention at hand concerns a method for the production of polymer surfaces of this type, their use and polymers of the general formula I: wherein n is an integer between 10 and 4,500, preferably between 20 and 2,200 and particularly preferably between 100 and 670.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: February 23, 2006
    Date of Patent: October 28, 2014
    Assignee: Philipps-Universit├Ąt Marburg
    Inventors: Andreas Greiner, Seema Agarwal, Michael Bognitzki, Sven Horst
  • Patent number: 7994372
    Abstract: Fluorinated paracyclophane compounds represented by the formula: where least one of R1 and R2 comprises a fluorinated moiety is disclosed. These compounds can be utilized as precursor dimer compounds to produce polymeric coatings comprising copolymers of trifluorinated paraxylylene, including flexible fluorinated paraxylylene coatings.
    Type: Grant
