Towards the elaboration of nanometre thickness functionalized cross-linked siloxane networks by Langmuir–Blodgett technique: application to artificial muscles based on photomechanical effect.

France / Франция

The elaboration of smart two-dimensional cross-linked networks able to contraction-dilation under the action of light, pH, electrolyte concentration, temperature, etc., is of obvious practical interest for different branches of the nanotechnology. This presentation reports for the first time on the possibility of formation of smart two-dimensional photosensitive cross-linked siloxane networks via polymerization reaction inside the Langmuir–Blodgett films formed by alkoxysilane monomers or oligomers.
