Adhesion Promoting Monomers
Functional groups known to increase adhesion of polymers to surfaces include phosphate and carboxylic acids (metal adhesion) and silyl ethers (glass/silaceous adhesion) which hydrolyze to give reactive Si-OH bonds. While these monomers are well studied examples, many monomers having functional groups such as acids, amines and hydroxyls can also impart polymer adhesion to various substrates. Please refer to other tables for a more expansive listing of these monomers. Also see Amine Monomer section.
