Plasma polymerization of iron pentacarbonyl with C2 hydrocarbons

Published

Journal Article

Iron-containing plasma polymers are deposited from a plasma using iron pentacarbonyl (Fe(CO)5) plus C2 hydrocarbons as comonomers and are characterized using a variety of techniques. The plasma polymers are found to contain high proportions of highly dispersed iron oxide as well as lesser quantities of carboxylate and/or ketonate ions and aldehydic and/or ketonic groups. By decreasing the energy per unit mass W/FM part of the iron is deposited in a lower oxidation state complexed to CO and is soluble in organic solvents. The effects of hydrocarbon saturation and of the ratio of hydrocarbon to Fe(CO)5 are also described and a comparison is made with the product deposited when only Fe(CO)5 (or Fe(CO)5 plus H2) is used as the monomer. © 1984.
