Studies of metal-polymer interfaces Kono, Mari


The chemistry of surfaces and interfaces formed by polymers and metals have been studied by surface science methods with the overall objective of gaining improved insights into interfacial adhesion. Three areas were emphasized: (i) interactions of thermally deposited metals with particular polymer surfaces; (ii) investigation of the possibility for using a remote hydrogen plasma for modifying polymer surfaces in controlled manners; and (iii) studies of the bonding of organosilanes to aluminum surfaces, in part with reference to developing nonchromating processes for corrosion protection. Interfaces formed between polyethyleneterephthalate (PET) and thin layers (
