Paper Abstract

In this paper, a method of microwave plasma-induced grafting to enhance PDMS surface hydrophilicity was developed and its durable hydrophilicity resulted from an oriented grafting of acrylonitrile (AN) was described. In the investigations, the microwave plasma treatment parameters and post-wet chemical grafting were optimized, and their effects on hydrophilicity were also investigated. Contact angle measurements were used to assess the hydrophilicity of the various modified PDMS surfaces. Moreover, attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FT-IR) spectroscopic characterization was used to evaluate PDMS samples variation. It has been found that the cyano groups bonded onto PDMS showed the best hydrophilicity among the modified surfaces, which showed a better affinity to acetonitrile. Therefore the hydrophilic surface was formed on PDMS stamps and the results implied promising applications of DNA microarray.
