Novel materials that change their properties from water repellent (non polar, hydrophobic) to water attractant (polar, hydrophilic) when they are oxidized electrochemically or chemically are described. Thus these materials can be used for instant offset plates, and could be utilized for direct photocopying processes when incorporated in suitable machines.
