Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Chemical modification of copper surfaces was achieved through derivatization by K3Fe(CN)6 followed by dipping in Ca(NO3)2. This resulted in the formation of Mx[Cu(II) (NC)Fe (II/III) (CN)5] at the surface, Polyimide films were spin coated onto this modified copper surfaces and subsequently cured. A study of the processes/reactions occuring at the polyimide-copper interface has been attempted using XPS, SEM-EDX, Photoacoustic and FTIR spectroscopy. The consequent effects on adhesion of the polyimide film onto the modified copper substrate are sought to be elucidated by these studies.
