Ellipsometric characterization of ethylene oxide-butylene oxide diblock copolymer adsorption at the air-water interface

2005 (English)In: Langmuir, ISSN 0743-7463, E-ISSN 1520-5827, Vol. 21, 5061-5068 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Ellipsometry was used to determine the adsorbed layer thickness (d) and the surface excess (adsorbed amount, ¡) of a nonionic diblock copolymer, E106B16, of poly(ethylene oxide) (E) and poly(butylene oxide) (B) at the air-water interface. The results were obtained (i) by the conventional ellipsometric evaluation procedure using the change of both ellipsometric angles and ¢ and (ii) by using the change of ¢ only and assuming values of the layer thickness. It was demonstrated that the calculated surface excesses from the different methods were in close agreement, independent of the evaluation procedure, with a plateau adsorption of about 2.5 mg/m2 (400 Å2/molecule). Furthermore, the amount of E106B16 adsorbed at the air-water interface was found to be almost identical to that adsorbed from aqueous solution onto a hydrophobic solid surface. In addition, the possibility to use combined measurements with H2O or D2O as substrates to calculate values of d and ¡ was investigated and discussed. We also briefly discuss within which limits the Gibbs equation can be used to determine the surface excess of polydisperse block copolymers
