Paper Abstract

A FTIR technique (specular reflection with an incidence angle of 60° and light polarized parallel to the surface) is used to obtain information on thin organic layers on float glass. Two applications are described. 1) A spectrum of a self-assembled monolayer of octadecyltrichlorosilane on the glass surface is shown in the area 3000-2800 cm-1. Due to the monolayer orientation only -CH2- stretching vibrations are visible. 2) Hot-pressed polyurethane is peeled off from the glass : spectra of polymer residues on glass are obtained and the failure is shown to be cohesive.
