Materials engineers create new materials and improve existing materials. Everything is limited by the materials that are used to produce it. Materials engineers understand the relationship between the properties of a material and its internal structure — from the macro level down to the atomic level. The better the materials, the better the end result — it’s as simple as that.

Abstract

Hydrophobic paper has inspired advances in low-cost technologies. Of importance is the use of perfluorinated reagents, due to suspected release of HF. Surprisingly, by using a coupled TGA-IR-MS, we demonstrate that polymerization of a perfluorinated silane on paper, leads to rapid degradation, low-ash residue, and no toxic HF gas is produced under thermolysis.
