Plasma Dye Coating shortlisted at Emerging Technologies Competition 2017

(12-06-2017) The Plasma Dye Coating technology of the Supramolecular Research Group at Ghent University is shortlisted for the Emerging Technologies Competition.

UGent-Chemtech is proud to annouce that the proprietary "Plasma Dye Coating technology" of the Supramolecular Research Group of Prof Hoogenboom is shortlisted for the Emerging Technologies Competition 2017 organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Inventor, dr. Gertjan Vancoillie will pitch this great technology at the "Chemistry Means Business"- event on June 13th, in Manchester, UK.

Chemtech will attend the RSC meeting and the award winning event of the Emerging Technologies Competition 2017, we strongly support Gertjan and hope the technology gets awarded. 

Plasma dye coating procedure: Dye-immobilization on polymeric materials

Ghent University’s new technology introduces a straightforward procedure for the fabrication of coloured polymeric materials. It uses covalent surface immobilisation of the desired dye using plasma-generated surface radicals. The procedure is generally applicable with a wide variety of dyes and a broad range of materials using the same simple method.
