The reactions between amines and Courtaulds AS carbon fibre surfaces have been studied by the ESCA technique. The carbon fibres were oxidized in a mixture of H2SO4 and HNO3, and then refluxed in amines or in solutions of amines. The formation of amine overlayers on the carbon fibres is confirmed. The average amine depths have been calculated from the ESCA data. The fractions of the carbon fibre surfaces covered by amine monolayers are also estimated. The paper gives evidence supporting the idea… CONTINUE READING
