About this Book
This book illustrates plasma properties, polymer characteristics, surface specifics, and how to purposefully combine plasma and polymer chemistry. In so doing, it covers plasma polymerization, surface functionalization, 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 polymerization in liquids. Finally, among the numerous applications discussed are plasmas for chemical synthesis, industrial processes or the modification of membranes and papers, adhesion promotion, corrosion protection, fire retardency, and as ion-exchangers and biomaterials as well as DNA chips, nanoparticle modifiers, and solar cells.
