Figure 5

Dependency of contact angle to water and Tg of a PLimC film on the degree of functionalization with PEG-3-OH (black), ME (red) or MAc (blue), respectively. The schematic of the functionalization is shown for the thiol-ene addition of ME and MAc to give PLimC-ME and PLimC-MAc, respectively, and the electrophilic addition of PEG-3-OH to give PLimC-PEG.
