Liquid Phase Photo-Polymerization

  • Materials: Glass slides HybriWell gasketed polycarbonate film Photomask Prepolymer mixture (92 wt.% isobornyl acrylate, 5 wt.% tetraethyleneglycol dimethacrylate, 3 wt.% 2,2A-dimethoxy-2- phenyl-acetophenone) UV lamp
  • Protocol: Fill with prepolymer mixture: isobornyl acrylate, tetraethyleneglycol dimethacrylate (x-linker), 2,2A-dimethoxy-2-phenyl-acetophenone (photoinitiator) Suction off uncured prepolymer. Rinse with EtOH and water. Glue inlets/outlets (blunt suringe needles) via 5-min epoxy.

Thank you! No I am at student, it's one of my lab reports for a very good course in microfluidics I took last summer (see link below)

This looks interesting.

Are you a teacher, and this a guide for your students?
