    Abstract

    Inelastic electron tunnelling spectroscopy is a way of obtaining the vibrational spectra of molecules adsorbed on a metal oxide. Hence it is appropriate to use this technique to examine adhesives and adhesion promoters. Here, the principles and methods of inelastic electron tunnelling spectroscopy are presented, with the results of studies on polyvinylacetate, polymethylmethacrylate and some silane adhesion promoters.
