About this product
- DescriptionMore than 99% of all visible matter in the universe occurs as highly ionized gas plasma with high energy content. Electrical low- and atmospheric-pressure plasmas are characterized by continuous source of moderate quantities of energy or enthalpy transferred predominantly as kinetic energy of electrons. Therefore, such energetically unbalanced plasmas have low gas temperature but produce sufficient energy for inelastic collisions with atoms and molecules in the gas phase, thus producing reactive species and photons, which are able to initiate all types of polymerizations or activate any surface of low reactive polymers. However, the broadly distributed energies in the plasma exceed partially the binding energies in polymers, thus initiating very often unselective reactions and polymer degradation. The intention of this book is to present new plasma processes and new plasma reactions of high selectivity and high yield. This book aims to bridge classical and plasma chemistry, particularly focusing on polymer chemistry in the bulk and on the surface under plasma exposure. The stability of surface functionalization and the qualitative and quantitative measurement of functional groups at polymer surface are featured prominently, and chemical pathways for suppressing the undesirable side effects of plasma exposure are proposed and illustrated with numerous examples. Special attention is paid to the smooth transition from inanimate polymer surfaces to modified bioactive polymer surfaces. A wide range of techniques, plasma types and applications are demonstrated.
- Author BiographyJorg Florian Friedrich was born in 1948, in Erkner, near Berlin. From 1967 to 1972, he studied chemistry at Humboldt University in Berlin. In 1972 he began his PhD studies at the German Academy of Sciences in Berlin in the Institute for Macromolecular Chemistry. His graduation followed in the years 1974/1975 as PhD resp. Dr. rer. nat., and in 1981/1982 he obtained his habilitation (lecture qualifi cation). He continued his career in the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) from 1995 on as head of the Division 'Analysis and Structure of Polymers' and later on 'Polymer Surfaces'. He was appointed to professor (and director) in 1996 and to professor at Technical University of Berlin, in 2007.
