    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

The fouling of surfaces by organic polymers can be strongly reduced by applying a 75 nm covalently bound fluorinated polymer brush onto the surface. This strong reduction can be repaired, even more than 10 times, after the polymer brush has been damaged (e.g. by a strong base) using the self-repairing character of these brushes via molecular reorganization at the surface-air interface at slightly elevated temperatures.
