Degradablepolyurethane-organic release system prevents marine biofouling
/ Controlled release of antifoulantiscritical for marine antibiofouling. Researchershavepreparedpolyurethane with degradablepolyestersegments and useditas release system for organicantifoulants.
Graffiti for science - determiningerosionrates via painting
/ The determination of the spatialdistribution of erosive processesisdifficult. Thisiswhy to date there are onlyfew data available, especially on millimeter scale. In a study, scientists show how erosive processes can be visualised by simple painting.
