Perfluorocompound and Hexamethyldisilazane Thin Film Composite Material Used for Surface Modification
The aim of this work was to produce, to characterize and test selective membranes based on derivatives from organic fluorinated/silicon compounds. The produced composites presented silicon and fluorinated species on the surface. The morphology of these non uniform surfaces showed big domains in the micrometer scale but a closer view reveals structures also in the nanometer range. Contact angle measurements showed a mildly hydrophobic and organophilic surface. Polymeric tapes treated with this composite showed an increase on permeation rate for the organic compounds. An acrylic device that employed this modified polymeric tape was manufactured and used for sample pretreatment during chemical analysis.
