Abstract

This paper reports on the plasma polymerization of amine-containing films from 3-aminopropyl trimethoxysilane (APTMS) on fluorocarbon polymers, deposited by means of a µPlasmaPrint setup. The setup, which utilizes a (multi) pin-to-plate dielectric barrier discharge at atmospheric pressure, enables area-selective functionalization by means of a dot-wise patterning of the plasma treatment/deposition. The present study addresses the identification of the chemical structure of the polymerized APTMS films as well as the interface development between the APTMS polymer and the fluorocarbon polymer. Furthermore, this study reports on an example of an immobilization reaction on patterned polymers, namely the electrodeless deposition of nickel pads.
