Surface modification of PDMS in Microfluidic Devices
2014 (English)In: Concise Encycloppedia of High Performance Silicones / [ed] Atul Tiwari and Mark D Soucek, Salem, Massachusetts: John Wiley & Sons, 2014Chapter in book (Refereed)
Being one of the most used materials for fabrication of microfluidic devices, Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) attracts great attention for years since G M Whitesides’ group introduced soft lithography - a rapid prototyping of microfluidic systems with PDMS, into the scientific community in the early 1990s. Its advantages in both physical and chemical properties promote a lots of micro/nano applications. Great efforts have been put to enhance its ability as well as minimize its drawbacks. In this chapter, kinds of common used methods in PDMS surface modification with their characterization methods and their recent development are introduced and discussed.
