  • Publication number: 20110130510
    Abstract: A coated platelet that includes a robust polymer coating that has substantially uniform structures, a method for producing the coated platelet and a system that includes the coated platelet are described. The disclosed method involves immobilizing initiator molecules onto the surfaces of the platelet by using surface coupling groups and polymerization from initiating sites of the initiator anchored on the surface of the platelet. The disclosed method allows uniform growth of the polymer chains so as to produce robust coated platelets with a smooth coated surface. The disclosed system includes only the disclosed coated platelet and a solvent and eliminates the need to add polymer resins separate from the resins that are covalently attached to the platelet.
