Visco-elastic and adhesive properties of adsorbed polyelectrolyte multilayers determined in situ with QCM-D and AFM measurements

Notley, Shannon; Eriksson, Malin; Wagberg, Lars


The build-up of multilayers constructed from polyallylamine hydrochloride (PAH) and polyacrylic acid (PAA) under different pH conditions was continuously monitored using the quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation. The adsorbed amount of polymer as well as the amount of coupled water was determined. Furthermore, from dissipation measurements, it was possible to determine the visco-elastic properties of the adsorbed multilayer. These properties were highly dependent on the polyelectrolyte...[Show more]
