Summary of grafting density results from MNs
Initiator anchoring chemistry Monomer Polymerization Grafting density in chain(s)/nm2 Inference
Phosphonic acid Benzyl methacrylate 30 °C, ATRP CuBr/PMDETA ~2.0 Fastest polymerization
Phosphonic acid Methyl methacrylate 30 °C, ATRP CuBr/PMDETA ~1.0 Faster polymerization
Phosphonic acid Styrene 100 °C, ATRP CuBr/PMDETA ~0.7 Slow polymerization
