Characterization of polymer nanostructures
About this E-Book: Nanocomposite polymers, multilayer thin films, nanofibers and other polymer nanoforms often offer new properties or enhanced performance compared to bulk materials, demanding tools for chemical analysis with nanoscale spatial resolution for their investigations. nano-FTIR and s-SNOM are two leading techniques for nanoscale chemical mapping and identification.
This E-Book shows applications of nano-FTIR and s-SNOM in polymer sciences:
- Nanoscale chemical identification using standard IR database,
- IR nanoimaging of polymer films, nanoparticles & monolayers,
- Molecular conformation and orientation in an ultrathin polymer film,
- Hyperspectral & correlative nanoscopy of polymer composites.
