Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Superhydrophobic surfaces were prepared from solutions of isotactic polypropylenes of various molecular weights using soft chemistry. Varying the conditions of the experiments (polymer concentration and initial amount of the coated solution) allowed us to optimize the superhydrophobic behavior of the polymer film. Results show that decreasing the concentration and/or film thicknesses decreases the probability to get superhydrophobicity for all polypropylenes tested. Measurement and analysis of advancing and receding contact angles as well as estimation of surface homogeneity were performed. Similar results were obtained with syndio- as well as atactic polypropylenes.
