Title Preparation and Characterization of Acrylic Resin/Titania Hybrid Nanocomposite Coatings by Photopolymerization and Sol-Gel Process

Abstract Titania-containing coatings were prepared through a dual-cure process involving radical photopolymerization of a polysiloxane diacrylate and subsequent condensation of alkyltitanate groups. The kinetics of photopolymerization and condensation reaction was investigated as a function of the inorganic phase precursor (titanium tetraisopropoxide) content. AFM analysis gave evidence of a strong interaction between the organic and inorganic phase with the formation of titania domains in the nanoscale region. An increase of hydrophilicity in the coatings surface with increasing TiO2 content was evidenced.
