About this book

This open access book reviews the recent research achievements of the investigation of interfacial phenomena in polymer/polymer and polymer/metal joint interfaces with the state-of-the-art analytical techniques not previously used in the field of adhesion and bonding. Adhesion performance is determined not only by the two-dimensional interfaces but also by a three-dimensional (3D) region having different properties and structural characteristics that extends into the bulk materials. In this book, the authors also discuss in detail the bonding mechanism by characterizing such 3D regions called “interphase”. The book is of great interest to researchers and engineers devoted to adhesion science and technology.

Introduction—Interfaces in Adhesion and Adhesive Bonding
Abstract
The social background of research on adhesion and adhesive bonding is reviewed. Next, the interphase in the adhesive bond is defined, and the multi-scale and hierarchical structures contained in the interface are arranged based on their sizes. Finally, the analytical methodologies this book introduces to elucidate interfacial phenomena in adhesion and adhesive bonding are overviewed.

Electron Microscopy for Visualization of Interfaces in Adhesion and Adhesive Bonding
Abstract
This chapter provides an overview of electron microscopy techniques to investigate interfaces in polymeric materials and adhesive bonds. First, how the instruments of energy-filtering transmission electron microscopy (EFTEM), scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) work and are operated is briefly described. The principles of electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) and energy-dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDX), which are spectroscopic techniques associated with these instruments, are described. Next, the specimen preparation techniques, such as ultramicrotomy, heavy metal staining, focused ion beam (FIB) fabrications, and replica method, which are essential for these electron microscopy tasks, are introduced. This chapter also reviews advanced electron microscopy techniques, such as STEM-EDX-tomography, chemical phase mapping using electron energy-loss near-edge structure (ELNES), and in situ tensile TEM. Numerous examples of the application of these techniques to various surfaces and interfaces present in polymer alloys and composites, crystalline polymers, adhesive bonds, and metal substrate surfaces are presented.

Interfacial Phenomena in Adhesion and Adhesive Bonding Investigated by Electron Microscopy
Abstract
Using electron microscopy techniques described in Chap. 2, we investigate interfacial phenomena in adhesion and adhesive bonding. Polymer–polymer interfaces formed via interdiffusion are visualized and characterized by EFTEM. Fractographic studies using high-resolution SEM investigate entanglements at the polymer–polymer interfaces, and the adhesion mechanism is discussed about the interfacial entanglements. The effect of surface treatments of polymers for adhesion improvement is studied in terms of the surface roughness and the chemical functionality of the adherend created by the surface pretreatments. We then describe the role of chemical interactions between polymers and metals on bonding by the analysis of fracture surfaces by the STEM-replica technique. Bonding mechanisms of adhesive bonding and recently developed direct bonding of metal and plastic are also investigated by STEM-EELS/ELNES and STEM-tomography. Finally, we evaluate the toughness and durability of adhesive joints between metal and carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) and discuss the durability of the adhesive bonding.

Direct Visualization of Mechanical Behavior During Adhesive Bonding Failure Using Mechanoluminescence (ML)
Abstract
In this chapter, we introduce recent progress in direct visualization of mechanical behavior in the failure process of adhesive bonding by mechanoluminescence (ML). Firstly, basic mechanoluminescence technologies are introduced in terms of materials, sensors, sensing technologies in Sects. 1 and 2. Then, for considering effective application of ML sensing that takes advantage of technological features, (Sect. 3) structural health monitoring (SHM)/Conditioning based monitoring (CBM), and (Sect. 4) innovation in design and prediction are discussed from the viewpoint of visualizing mechanical behavior, deterioration, and failure process as killer application of ML sensing. Furthermore, visualizing the mechanical behavior of adhesive joints, fracture initiation points, and fracture processes will be introduced based on time-series information of mechanoluminescence (ML) images, using internationally standardized adhesion strength tests.

Analysis of Molecular Surface/Interfacial Layer by Sum-Frequency Generation (SFG) Spectroscopy
Abstract
This chapter reviews recent progress in polymer surfaces and interface studies using sum-frequency generation (SFG) vibrational spectroscopy. SFG is a surface-specific vibrational spectroscopic technique that has spread on a worldwide scale since it was first reported in 1987. The SFG principles, instruments, techniques, and experiments are presented in detail, and recent results on interfacial physics and chemistry at jointed interfaces are described. It focuses on SFG studies of the surfaces and buried interfaces of polymeric materials, such as modification of polymer surfaces, polymer-water, polymer-metal, and polymer–polymer interfaces. This review demonstrates that SFG is a powerful technique for nondestructive, in situ measurement of molecular level understanding at complex polymer surfaces and interfaces.
