XPS spectra of nine model polymers containing oxygen functional groups are studied. The measured O 1s binding energies were 532.8 eV for ether and alcohol oxgens, 532.2 eV for ketone oxygens and 532.2 and 533.7 eV for the carbonyl- and ether-type oxygens in ester groups, respectively. Comparison with previous experimental and theoretical O 1s binding energies for these groups is also presented. Absolute O Is binding energies of polymers are not in agreement with those published by other groups. However, with the exception of ketone oxygens, binding energy shifts observed for the various functional groups are comparable.
