Transition metal containing plasma polymers
The plasma polymerization of the C2 hydrocarbons in the presence of Fe(CO)5vapor can lead to the formation of soluble cluster complexes (I) and/or high oxidation state iron both in the form of the oxide (II) and associated with the carboxylate or β-diketonate ion (III). Analysis of the electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA) spectra obtained yields information regarding the nature of I on the one hand, and regarding the prevalence of II relative to III, on the other. The relative yield of I with respect to (II + III) can be controlled, at will, by variation of W/F. This permits control of the coating’s morphology (continuity) as shown by the electrodeposition of Prussian blue on smooth surfaces coated with plasma polymer containing I + II + III. © 1985, American Vacuum Society.
