Title

The Composition of Organo-Tin Polymer Films on Metallic Substrate Materials

Abstract

Glow discharge films with various ratios of carbon to tin were deposited on various metals and on glass. The ratio of carbon to tin was determined quantitatively by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES). The AES data correlated well with the XPS data. The X-ray beam and electron impact effects on organo-tin films influence the composition and are discussed in detail. The ratio of carbon to tin was not constant throughout the glow discharge reactor and this inhomogeneity is accounted for by the prevalence of “atomic” polymerization rather than “molecular” polymerization. We demonstrated that the substrate material had a definite influence on the composition of the films. © 1979.
