Title

Plasma-deposited Polymer Films III. The Effects of Gamma Irradiation

Abstract

The results of a study of irradiated and unirradiated samples of polymers prepared by plasma polymerization in an inductively coupled radiofrequency (rf) reactor using infrared, elemental, thermogravimetric, and ESR analyses and density refractive index measurements are presented. the plasma-formed polymers studied include polypropylene, poly(ethylbenzene), poly(methyl methacrylate), poly(tetrafluoroethylene), poly(chlorotrifluoroethylene), and poly(trimethylchlorosilane). in experiments, characterization of both irradiated and unirradiated plasma-formed polymer films was carried out to determine chemical and/or physical property changes occurring as a consequence of radiation. Analysis of these data suggests that irradiation may provide a means of quenching free-radical sites.
