Poly(1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoroisopropyl methacrylate-co-glycidyl methacrylate), glycidyl methacrylate 10 mol% for cladding layer in optical waveguides

Low refractive index, photocrosslinkable polymer designed for applications in the field of coating and optical electronics

Poly(1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoroisopropyl methacrylate-co-glycidyl methacrylate) (HFIPMA-co-GMA) is a random copolymer of hexafluoroisopropyl methacrylate (HFIPMA) and photocrosslinkable glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) repeating units as the backbone. 

Hexafluoroisopropyl methacrylate is super-hydrophobic and corrosion resistive. With glycidyl methacrylate incorporated into the main structure, HFIPMA-co-GMA can be used as a coating agent to improve the stability of stainless steel and to create super-hydrophobic cotton cloth. With its low refractive index, the polymer also finds application in optical electronics, i.e. cladding layer in optical waveguides.
