Ferroelectric polymers made more versatile: A toolbox for the production of different PVDF-based block copolymers with tuneable properties

Trending story found on
The ferroelectric polymer PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) has interesting properties and could be used to store information or energy. One of the main drawbacks of PVDF is that if you add extra functional groups to improve certain properties, this also interferes with its ferroelectricity. To solve this, scientists have created block copolymers from PVDF that leave its ferroelectricity intact, but allow them to tune its characteristics.
