This book chronicles the proceedings of the Symposium onAcid-Base Interactions: Relevance to Adhesion Science and Technologyheld on the occasion of the 75th birthday of Professor FrederickM. Fowkes as a part of the 64th Colloid and Surface Science Symposium heldat Lehigh University, June 18--20, 1990.
The book contains 22 papers which are divided into three sections.Topics covered include: Acid-base concepts: historical account, currentstatus, and prospects for the future; quantum-mechanical approach tounderstanding acid-base interactions at metal-polymer interfaces;assessment of acidbase interactions at solid-liquid interfaces;quantitative characterization of the acid-base properties of solvents,polymers and inorganic surfaces (overview by Professor Fowkes);acid-base characteristics of a variety of solid materials (clayminerals, carbon fibers, glass fibers, silicas, metals, polymers);acid-base interactions in wetting; applications of acid-baseinteractions in a variety of situations, e.g. in the adhesion ofpolymers to metallic and ceramic substrates, mechanical properties ofwood, properties of filled polymers, and behavior of fiber-reinforcedpolymer composites.
This book will be of value and interest to researchers engaged activelyin unravelling acid-base interactions and how these can be utilized inunderstanding and tailoring adhesion.
