Sum frequency generation studies on the surface structures of plasticized and unplasticized polyurethane in air and in water.

Abstract

This study characterizes the molecular surface structures of polyurethane (PU) and plasticized PU films in air, in water, and in albumin solution in situ using a nonlinear optical technique, sum frequency generation (SFG) vibrational spectroscopy. Two different plasticizers are investigated: dioctyl sebacate (DOS) and o-nitrophenyl octyl ether (NPOE… (More)
