Abstract:

Several phenomena at the polymer-solid substrate interface has been investigated with the objective of elucidating the mechanism of adhesion. It has been established by IR spectroscopy that adhesion of polymers is largely due to chemical donor-acceptor interactions. The adhesion can therefore be controlled by rational selection of the functional groups of the adhesive and substrate on the basis of their donor-acceptor properties. The change in characteristics of a semiconductor on formation of adhesion bond belween it and the polymer and the part played by the functional groups of the polymer, responsible for the degree of charge of the surface, have been determined. The effect of the functional groups of the polymer on the intensity of electron emission observed on breakdown of the adhesion bond has been investigated by a novel method. Author
