The Plasma Chemistry of Polymer Surfaces

The intention of the book The Plasma Chemistry of Polymer Surfaces - Advanced Techniques for Surface Design is to present new plasma processes and new plasma reactions of high selectivity and high yield. It aims to bridge classical and plasma chemistry, particularly focusing on polymer chemistry in the bulk an on the surface under plasma exposure. The book illustrates plasma properties, polymer characteristics, surface specifics, and how to purposefully combine plasma and polymer chemistry. In so doing, it covers plasma polymerisation, surface functionalisation, etching, crosslinking, and deposition of monotype functional-group-bearing plasma polymers.It explains different techniques and plasma types, such as pressure-pulsed, remote, low-wattage plasmas and plasma polymerisation in liquids. Among the numerous applications discussed are also plasmas for chemical synthesis, industrial processes or the modification of membranes and papers, adhesion promotion, corrosion protection, fire retardancy, and as ion-exchangers and biomaterials as well as DNA chips, nanoparticle modifiers, and solar cells.
