Pagination or Media Count:
A variety of functionalized Fluorinated Polyhedral Oligomeric SilSesquioxanes F-POSS were synthesized and characterized. The chemical structures were confirmed using multinuclear NMR spectroscopy 1H, 13C, 19F, and 29Si, FT-IR, and combustion analysis. Dynamic contact angle measurements of these compounds were taken with water and hexadecane. Copolymers containing F-POSS were synthesized from monomer functionalized F-POSS. These novel structures can be used as initial building blocks for the development of low surface energy materials.
