11.1 Introduction

The chemical composition of organic surfaces is of great importance, since it helps in the understanding of interfacial phenomena—such as wetting, adhesion, friction, etc.—and how they relate to the physicochemical parameters of functional groups. Furthermore, following the composition of an organic surface or interface as a function of time helps in understanding surface stability, interfacial diffusion, etc. X-ray photoelectron ...
