Abstract

original image

Gründlich gebürstet: Strukturell und thermodynamisch ähnliche Vernetzer wirken entgegengesetzt auf den lateralen Widerstand gepfropfter dünner Filme aus Poly(4-vinylpyridin)-Bürsten. Die chemisch reversiblen Änderungen in der Mechanik werden durch die unähnliche Kinetik der vernetzenden Wechselwirkung beeinflusst.
