Technical Paper -
The synthesis and characterization of a series of biocidal polymeric materials for potential antifouling submarine applications are presented. The polymeric backbone of these materials contains anionic units, such as styrene sulfonate, and/or acrylate or maleate units. The hydrophobic/hydrophilic nature of these polymers was, furthermore, tuned through copolymerization with hydrophobic units, such...
