Mussels can obtain strong underwater attachment to virtually all kinds of surfaces including rocks, metals, wood structures, polymers and concretes by secreting mussel foot proteins to form byssus. Great efforts have been dedicated to understanding this behavior and it is found that an catecholic...
In this study, an oxidant-induced mussel-inspired modification was implemented to prepare modified polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) membrane utilizing the deposition of polydopamine (PDA) coating, which was oxidized by sodium periodate under a slightly acidic condition (pH = 5.0). The surface...
