Triallylphosphine plasma polymerization and reaction of the product with volatile transition metal compounds
The plasma polymerization of triallylphosphine in order to form a crosslinked polymer thin film is described. The plasma polymer thin film has been characterized and shown to contain a high proporation of CC and P groups conserved from the monomer. The accessibilty of the phosphine groups has been demonstrated by reaction with O2, NO, Ni(CO)4, and Fe(CO)5. Reaction with O2, and NO results in a PO moiety formation. Reaction with the gaseous metal carbonyls results in fixation of the metal via complexation by the P groups as a result of exchange with CO ligand(s). This illustrates the utility of a ligand donor group containing plasma polymer as an avenue for the formation of a single phase transition metal containing plasma polymer.
