- Hydrophobized plant polyphenols can be easily prepared by rational and controlled etherification of highly abundant aromatic hydroxyls with linear alkyl chains. The resultant organo-soluble polyphenols spontaneously formed fibrous structures and unravelled to be potential adhesive, anticorrosion, and antibacterial coatings.
