|Abstract:||Methacryloxypropyl-modified poly(dimethylsiloxane) rubbers were obtained from poly(dimethylsiloxane), PDMS, and methacryloxypropyltrimethoxysilane, MPTMS, by polycondensation reactions. The modified rubbers, prepared with 20 and 30% (v/v) of MPTMS, were used as substrates for microchannel fabrication by the CO2 laser ablation technique. Raman imaging spectroscopy was used for the surface characterization, showing the homogeneity of the rubbery material, with uniform distribution of the crosslinking centers. Under the experimental conditions used, damage to the rubber from the CO2 laser radiation used for the channel engraving was not observed. Correlation maps of the surface were obtained in order to spatially evaluate the modification inside and outside the channels. The correlations between the methacryloxypropyl-modified poly(dimethylsiloxane) rubbers and MPTMS (spectral range of 1800-1550 cm(-1)) and PDMS (spectral range of 820-670 cm(-1)) precursors were higher than 0.95 and 0.99, respectively. In addition, Raman imaging spectroscopy allows monitoring the topography of the fabricated microchannel. (C) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|
