Abstract:

Organometallic polymers of optical quality have been prepared by various synthetic methods. The antisliming and antifouling performance of these polymers has been determined by clinical antibacterial assay and tropical field exposure trials. For the first time organometallic monomers have been copolymerized with fluoromonomers in an attempt to couple the antisliming and nonwetting characteristics of each into an optical material for underwater use.
