Characterization and Direct Force Measurements of Fluorocarbon Monolayer Surfaces
We have prepared hydrophobic surfaces with Heptadecafluoro-1,1,2,2,-tetrahydrodecyltriethoxysilane (FFE) by LB method. The surface morphology, chemical composition, and the stability of the fluorocarbon surface thus prepared were examined with atomic force microscope (AFM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and by contact angle measurement. The force measurements with the well-characterized surface were carried out in dry air, humid air, and water.
