Chemical modification of the Z-type perfluoropolyether by introducing phosphate groups yields a multifunctional material useful for preparing aqueous solutions, hydrogels and emulsions. IN this article, we discuss the material's formulation guidelines, and report results of tests on its water/oil repellency, its water resistance, its skin irritation and its antimicrobial activity.
