Title
Surface characterization and stability of an epoxy resin surface modified with polyamines grafted on polydopamine
Author
Abstract
This paper reports on polydopamine and polyamine surface modifications of an etched epoxy cresol novolac (ECN) resin using the `grafting to' method. Three different polyamines are used for the grafting reactions: branched polyethyleneimine (B-PEI), linear polyethyleneimine (L-PEI) and diethylenetriamine (DETA). These modifications are compared to control materials prepared via direct deposition of polyamines. The stability of the modifications toward a concentrated hydrochloric acid (HCl) environment is evaluated. The modified surfaces are characterized with scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and time-of-flight static secondary ion mass spectroscopy (TOF-S-SIMS).
