Paper Abstract

Specular reflectance Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy has been used to study the chemical interaction and molecular structure and orientation of thin coatings of model carboxylate-containing organic compounds on coupons of highly polished SAE 1010 steel. The aim of this work has been to study the extent and nature of the coating molecule/steel substrate interaction and to utilize polarized incident radiation to examine the orientation of the coating molecule with respect to the steel surface at or near the coating/steel interface. The results of this model study demonstrate the potential of specular reflectance techniques for studying systems of interest in the coatings industry.
