Abstract
The series of inorganic-organic hybrid materials were prepared from silane precursors by the sol-gel process. The resulted perfluorinated organosilicate liquid oligomers were applied on glass substrates and cured by heat yielding hard, clear and well adhering films. The films porosity, water contact angle, refractive index, and absorption in UV-Vis and IR were measured to characterize optical and physicochemical properties of the prepared films. The perfluorinated organosilicate films exhibited excellent optical transparency, low refractive indices, low porosity as well as non-wetting, hydrophobic behavior.
