Cyclic Voltammetry for the Study of Polymer Film Adhesion to Platinum Neurological Electrodes
Many epoxy and polymeric coatings, with a broad spectrum of bulk and surface properties, are available for microelectrode insulators in neurophysiology. One of the premier properties of a biomaterial must be its ability to adhere to the underlying substrate. The technique of cyclic voltammetry has been applied to neurological electrodes to compare the adhesion of various insulating films. We found that this technique was advantageous over conventional ones (i.e. pull tests) in that we could observe the synergistic effects of water, ions, and electric fields. © 1981.
