Abstract

The aluminium/polyethylene terephthalate interface is investigated with a combined theoretical and experimental approach, in order to understand the interactions occurring at the molecular level when the metal is deposited onto the polymer surface. The theoretical approach consists in performing quantum-chemical calculations on short molecular model systems interacting with a few aluminium atoms. These results are compared to experimental X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy data collected during the early stages of interface formation.
