Light-responsive caffeine transfer through porous polycarbonate


Baumann, Lukas; de Courten, Damien; Wolf, Martin; Rossi, René M; Scherer, Lukas J (2013). Light-responsive caffeine transfer through porous polycarbonate. ACS applied materials & interfaces, 5(13):5894-5897.

Abstract

Light-responsive membranes based on a porous polycarbonate (PC) matrix were developed by surface functionalization with spirobenzopyran (SP)-containing polymers. The surface modification was generated by plasma-induced surface graft polymerization. Mass transfer rates of caffeine through these membranes were found to be up to eight times higher under UV irradiation than at daylight.
