Epoxy resins, which are obtained by the curing reaction of epoxy- and amine-compounds mixture, have been often utilized in contact with metals. We herein report on the chemical composition of the epoxy resin in close proximity to the copper interface on the basis of a non-destructive method. The concentration of the amine component in the interfacial region was 2-fold higher than that in the bulk, and the interfacial enrichment extended over at least 10 nm.
