Photo-polymerization is a polymerization method widely exploited in many technological fields, due to its high versatility and fast reaction rates. In this study, poly(ethylene glycol) methacrylate (PEGMA) nanostructures are grown onto cellulose following a simple and promising light-driven reaction mechanism involving benzophenone (as photo-initiator) and UV-curing. The effectiveness of the surface functionalization has been determined by means of morphological and physicochemical characterizations, showing the formation of very sharp PEGMA nanometric architectures.

Abstract

Photo-polymerization is a polymerization method widely exploited in many technological fields, due to its high versatility and fast reaction rates. In this study, poly(ethylene glycol) methacrylate (PEGMA) nanostructures are grown onto cellulose following a simple and promising light-driven reaction mechanism involving benzophenone (as photo-initiator) and UV-curing. The effectiveness of the surface functionalization has been determined by means of morphological and physicochemical characterizations, showing the formation of very sharp PEGMA nanometric architectures.
