Paper Abstract

A brief comparison of different FT-IR techniques for analysis of a polymer film on a me-tal surface is made. DRIFT (Diffuse Reflectance Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) is used to obtain spectra of thin films of polystyrene on metal and glass substrates. Band intensities measured for different thicknesses of free polystyrene films are found to follow correctly the Kubelka-Munk theory relating concentration and band intensity.
