Abstract: In this study, a hydroxylated glass was coated by a poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAM) film via photopolymerization reaction. The pNIPAM film grafted on the glass was investigated by ATR-FTIR and XPS. UV-Vis spectrophotometric direct transmittance analysis was used to study the temperature-sensitivity property of the pNIPAM film. All the results indicated that the pNIPAM film, which was grafted on the surface of the glass, has a good adhesive strength and stability, and it has many potential applications due to the property of discoloration with different temperature.
