Effect of Leo Exposure on Aromatic Polymers Containing Phenylphosphine Oxide Groups

As part of the Materials on The International Space Station Experiment (MISSE), aromatic polymers containing phenylphosphine oxide groups were exposed to low Earth orbit for ~4 years. All of the aromatic polymers containing phenylphosphine oxide groups survived the exposure despite the high fluence of atomic oxygen that completely eroded other polymer films… CONTINUE READING
