Abstract

Honeycomb structured porous materials were formed using four different casting variations of the water droplet templating method. The film quality of the materials generated from these casting techniques (airflow, cold stage, casting on water, and emulsion methods) was investigated by altering the polymer architecture and composition. Linear, star, and comb polystyrene as well as an amphiphilic diblock copolymer comprised of polystyrene-block- poly(dimethylacrylamide) (PS-b-PDMA) were previously synthesized and cast into films via these techniques. While irregular pore distributions were observed for linear polystyrene films generated by every technique screened, increasing the architectural complexity of the polymer yielded more regular films for a broad range of casting conditions for each of the techniques. With the exception of linear polystyrene, the airflow casting technique was shown to be the only technique capable of generating regular porous films for all of the polymeric materials. © Springer Science + Business Media, LLC 2006.

43 citations in Web of Science®

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
