Abstract

Wettability tuning for organic solvents is demonstrated with the "combination method", a reversal of the conventional "cleavage method". Several advantages are inherent to this method: for example, the syntheses are simple, various surface-active groups can be used, and the reaction proceeds with a low-energy light source. The image shows the result after UV irradiation through a patterning mask.
