Summary

This chapter reviews recent advances in plasma polymerization techniques for the deposition of ultrathin to thin functional organic films. Functional films are those that are marked by a particular functional group showing specific chemical reactivity characteristic of that group. The chapter also puts an emphasis on the production of organic thin films using unusual small organic molecules and discusses their chemical, physical, and morphological properties.
