Title: METHOD FOR CONTROLLING SURFACE CHARACTERISTICS THROUGH EXCHANGE OF SUPER HYDROPHOBIC/SUPER HYDROPHILIC SURFACE COATING AND ANION USING POLYMER ELECTROLYTE WITH AMMONIUM GROUPS
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a smart surface, and more specifically to a novel smart surface and method for manufacturing the same which enable the control of moisture conditions on the surface of materials ranging from super hydrophobic to super hydrophilic states. According to the present invention, the smart surface can be manufactured by graft-polymerizing a polymer electrolyte having ions which can be exchanged on a substrate surface with micro or nano scale roughness. According to the present invention, the method for manufacturing the smart surface can also be applied to substrates with flat surfaces, thereby enabling free control of the moisture condition of surfaces of various materials.
