Abstract

Core cross-linked star polymers based on poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) with an extremely low glass transition temperature (-124 °C) are used to form honeycomb materials the 'breath figure' technique-the soft-flowing nature of poly(dimethylsiloxane) enables the coating of particulate surfaces with an ordered honeycomb material.
