This book brings together various communities at work on polymer/metal interfaces so that the common important issues are highlighted, and knowledge and technology are transferred across disciplines and application fields. In particular, electronic, biological and adhesion properties, and their dependence on structure, chemistry and properties of polymer/metal interfaces, are featured. The last section of the book focuses on the basic science of defects, both at the atomic and mesoscopic scales, including their interactions, motions and microscopic and macroscopic effects. Both solid-state and fluid systems are addressed. Topics include: interfacial chemistry/fundamentals; interfacial adhesion and failure; interfaces in nanostructures and nanomaterials; charge injection and interfacial energetics; interfaces in applications; defect-mediated phenomena in ordered polymers.
