A low energy Ar+ ion-beam was used to modify the surface of a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) dry powder. The modification reaction was promoted by the oxygen gas injected during the irradiation. This simple modification route is characterized as a heterogeneous, solvent-free, environmentally favorable process. The surface functional groups of the modified HDPE were confirmed with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy as being various oxygen-containing… CONTINUE READING
