We have developed new xerogel coatings with organochalcogenide or metal oxide catalysts for the activation of hydrogen peroxide as anti-fouling, fouling-release surfaces. The catalysts perform more efficiently when covalently attached to the xerogel framework. The use of organosiloxanes allows the preparation of organically modified xerogel surfaces with tunable surface energy, porosityroughness, and topography. The use of longc-hain fluorocarbons allows the generation of phase separated materials with antifoulingfouling-release characteristics.
