Radiation-grafted polymerization from a gas phase to form polymeric layers on metal surfaces
Experimentally it is shown that, under irradiation in an atmosphere of non-saturated vinylidene chloride vapors, a polymeric layer is formed on the surface of oxidized titanium samples. The thickness of this layer increases with the increase of the oxide film. Such a dependence corresponds to the current understanding of the mechanism of formation and migration of the active excited centers that initiate grafted polymerization.
