Abstract

In this work, we investigated the polymerization of methacrylate surfactants on mica to be able to form permanent films on the surface. In situ polymerizations were conducted by photo-irradiation in the presence of an initiator, mainly AIBN or V-50. We found that irradiation of the adsorbed surfactant layer with 10-20 wt% V-50 produced a stable polymer film, which was resistant to rinsing with water.
