In this paper, we are the first to investigate systematically how the embedded molecules interact with PDMS matrix in aqueous environments and their impacts on the surface performance by varying various processing conditions such as water exposure time, curing master materials and embedded amphiphilic molecules. The results indicate that the interaction is strongly influenced by various processing conditions in a complicated way and the dominant forces are quite different in various conditions. Among them, water exposure time plays a clearly important role during the process.
