Area C: Development of complex liquids and substrates

Prepare multifunctional formulations containing various functional agents which have high affinity to natural and/or synthetic smooth (foils) and semi-porous (textile) materials, and to multi-functionalize the materials by the formulations including nanoparticles with specific properties using wet-chemical and ink-jet printing process.

Identify the potential systems for replacing expensive and environmentally challenging fluorinated materials with films comprised of low-surface energy component that could deliver certain levels of oleophobicity
