Interface chemistry and molecular interactions of phosphonic acid self-assembled monolayers on oxyhydroxide-covered aluminum in humid environments.


Barrier properties of self-assembled octadecylphosphonic acid (ODPA) monolayers on plasma-modified oxyhydroxide-covered aluminum surfaces were analyzed by means of in situ photoelastic modulated infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy (PM-IRRAS). The surface hydroxyl density prior to ODPA adsorption was increased by means of a low-temperature H(2)O… (More)
