Ultralow surface energy self-assembled monolayers of iodo-perfluorinated alkanes on silica driven by halogen bonding
Our mammoth paper “Ultralow surface energy self-assembled monolayers of iodo-perfluorinated alkanes on silica driven by halogen bonding” has been accepted by Nanoscale. It has been a long time coming, with lots of people contributing over the years, from USyd, ANSTO, UNSW, Flinders University, and Adolphe Merkle Institute. We are proud and looking forward to continuing …
