Hydrophobic fluorinated polymer surfaces

The invention at hand concerns novel hydrophobic fluorinated polymer surfaces, a method for their production and their use.<br><br>

comprised of homo- or copolymers, whereby the homo- or copolymers feature at least one fluoro-substituted aryl group. These novel fluoro-substituted aryl groups can be covalently bound to the primary polymer chain in every known way, eg via direct binding to the primary chain or via spacers.<br><br> The production of the hydrophobic surfaces, based on the present invention, is carried out simply and reproducibly, for example, by electrospinning of a corresponding polymer solution.The hydrophobic polymer surface is available in the form of particles or as particles which are connected by fibers. Typical diameters are in the range of 3 µm to 1 nm, whereby the surfaces feature contact angles of greater than or equal to 160° and water-roll angles of 0°.<br><br> In principle, all bases are suitable for use as a substrate to be coated with the novel hydrophobic polymers, in particular those made of plastic, metal or alloys.
