The chemical composition and morphology of the (Py)MMA-graft-copolymerized LDPE [(Py)MMA-g-LDPE] surfaces were characterized, respectively, by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and by atomic force microscopy (AFM). The concentration of the surface-grafted (Py)MMA polymer increased with Ar plasma pretreatment time and UV graft copolymerization time. The photophysical properties of the (Py)MMA-g-LDPE surfaces were measured by fluorescence spectroscopy. After graft copolymerization with the fluorescent monomer, the surface of the LDPE film was found to have incorporated new and unique functionalitie. © 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.||Source Title:||Journal of Applied Polymer Science||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/66832||ISSN:||00218995||DOI:||10.1002/app.1244|
