Abstract:

Marine structures which are designed to be submerged in an aqueous environment containing fouling organism are protected from fouling by the use of an organotin containing polymer wherein the tin is chemically bonded to the polymer. The polymer inhibits fouling of the exposed surface of the structure while minimizing the adverse effects on the surrounding environment due to reduced leaching of the organotin compound from the polymer.
