Atmospheric pressure plasma deposition of structurally well-defined polyacrylic acid films.

Ward, L. J. and Schofield, W. C. E. and Badyal, J. P. S. and Goodwin, A. J. and Merlin, P. J. (2003) 'Atmospheric pressure plasma deposition of structurally well-defined polyacrylic acid films.', Chemistry of materials., 15 (7). pp. 1466-1469.


Ultrasonic atomization of acrylic acid monomer into an atmospheric pressure glow discharge (APGD) leads to the deposition of structurally well-defined polymeric films. High retention of the carboxylic acid group has been verified by XPS and FT-IR spectroscopy. These films are found to exhibit low water contact angle values and display good adhesive and gas barrier performance.
