Plasma polymers containing uniformly dispersed nickel

Journal Article

In this communication the authors describe the formation and characterization of a plasma polymer containing transition metal atoms coordinated to phosphine functional groups. The phosphine group containing film was prepared by the plasma polymerization of triallylphosphine. The resulting plasma polymer (TAPP) was reacted with Ni(CO)4 to form a film in which nickel is complexed by the phosphine moiety(s). Such a film can also be formed in a manner analogous to cryochemical synthesis. Thus, triallylphosphine plasma polymer (TAPPP) was codeposited with evaporated nickel, the plasma reaction serving to deposit an insoluble and involatile film with nickel coordinated to plasma polymer phosphine groups (NiTAPPP).
