- Thiol–Maleimide Michael Addition Click Reaction: A New Route to Surface Modification of Porous Polymeric Monolith
Sabrina Belbekhouche, Mohamed Guerrouache and Benjamin Carbonnier
Article first published online: 10 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201500427
New implementation of thiol–maleimide Michael addition click reaction is presented for the surface functionalization of thiol-modified monoliths. Success of the reaction is ascertained based on Raman spectroscopy and surface interaction ability investigations. Functional monoliths with well-controlled surface properties were applied as capillary electrochromatographic separation media and platform for biomacromolecules immobilization.

Improvement in rejection and permeability of commercial silicon carbide membranes is achieved using polyelectrolyte multilayer membranes with a spacer of multiwalled carbon nanotubes in between. Up to 92% rejection for MgSO4 and a 60% rejection difference between MgCl2 and NaCl make these membranes appealing for nanofiltration and monovalent and divalent ion separations.
- PEG Brushes on Porous, PDMS-Coated Surfaces and Their Interaction with Carbon Dioxide
Gesine Gunkel-Grabole, Anja Car, Vikrant V. Naik, Laurent Marot, Gregor Ferk, Cornelia Palivan and Wolfgang Meier
Article first published online: 10 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201500450
Polymer brushes are synthesized via surface-initiated polymerization on polydimethylsiloxane coated, porous polymeric membranes. The polymerization reaction and the impact on the membrane's overall properties are studied in detail. Furthermore, the interaction between the PEG brushes and carbon dioxide is elucidated and reveals interesting insights, which underline the potential of polymer brushes to modify membrane characteristics.
- Silver Nanoparticle Arrays Prepared by In Situ Automatic Reduction of Silver Ions in Mussel-Inspired Block Copolymer Films
