Abstract

Angular-dependent X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (ADXPS) has been used to characterize interfaces formed by gamma-glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane (gamma-GPS) deposited on to aluminum panel surfaces. The application of a negative biasing potential to the sample with a thin gamma-GPS layer on chemically etched aluminum reveals an extra peak in the Al 2p spectra which is tentatively assigned to the effect of direct Si-O-Al bonding between silane and aluminum oxide. The dual approach of combining the ADXPS and bias potential techniques should have more general application to the non-destructive study of polymer/metal interfaces.
