Polymer/inorganic interfaces play a fundamental role in a wide range of applications, yet understanding of the fundamental interactions between polymers and inorganic phases, and how they affect the strength and durability of the interface, is still in its infancy. This proceedings volume addresses various aspects of polymer/inorganic interfaces, including surface preparation and treatment, characterization and interface performance. In addition, applications where the interface and its properties play a significant role, such as in biointerfaces, microelectronics, polymer composites and interpenetrating polymer networks, are discussed. Contributions to the volume examine various inorganic material/polymer interfaces with an emphasis on composites, epoxy resins, polyurethanes, poly(methyl methacrylate), polysiloxanes and various hydrophilic polymers. These are arranged in seven units that identify major research efforts in specific fields. They include: experimental probes of interfaces; biointeractions and biointerfaces; adhesion and interface durability; interface characterization; primers for interface preparation; interfaces and composites and surface preparation.Peppas, Nicholas A. is the author of 'Polymer/Inorganic Interfaces II Symposium Held April 18-20, 1995, San Francisco, California, U.S.A' with ISBN 9781558992887 and ISBN 155899288X.
