Abstract: With the objective of developing materials with repellent surfaces by combining both low surface energy and rough structure, superhydrophobic fluoropolymer films were prepared via surface graft polymerisation from copper substrates. A vinyl-terminated trimethoxysilane was firstly immobilised on the etched-copper surface to introduce active carbon-carbon double bonds. Subsequent graft polymerisation of 2,2,3,4,4,4-hexafluorobutyl acrylate (HFBA), in the presence of a polymerisation initiator 4,4′-azobis-(4-cyanpentanoic acid), yielded the fluoropolymer films on the copper substrates. The resultant P(HFBA)-grafted surfaces not only exhibited desired superhydrophobic property with water contact angle above 150°, but substantially improved the corrosion resistance of copper substrates. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
