Fabrication of Hierarchical Microporous Structures with Controlled Morphology and Topography
Co-continuous polymer blend has attracted broad interest in many technique fields due to its unique ability to be transferred into porous material with interconnected micro-channels. And combined with some surface patterning, it can provide material of hierarchical porous structure. A key challenge in the fabrication of material of desired morphology is the ability to control the interface movement. Here, we incorporate the thermo-geometrically controlled annealing and hot embossing to fabricate hierarchical microporous structures with well defined morphology and topography. Various novel structures demanded for many emerging applications can be created by judiciously using this newly developed technique.
