Paper Title:
The Influence of Elastic Modulus on the Adhesion of Fouling Organism to Poly(Dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS)
  Abstract

It’s important to prevent the happening of biological fouling because it can increase friction and accelerate corrosion to the marine ships. In this paper, PDMS elastomers with different modulus between 0.43 and 2.35MPa were prepared by hydrosilylation reactions, and the effect of modulus on the adhesion of diatom (Navicula sp) and ulva spore (Pertusa) were investigated. Results reveal that the density of adhered diatoms and ulva spores have no relation with elastic modulus(E), but the removal ratio of adhered diatoms and ulva spores increase significantly with the decrease of elastic modulus, and the deep study find it decrease in proportion to E1/2.
