Abstract

Surface molecular motions of amorphous polymeric solids have been directly measured on the basis of lateral force microscopic (LFM) and scanning viscoelasticity microscopic (SVM) measurements. SVM measurement revealed that the molecular motion at the surface of the monodisperse polystyrene (PS) film with Mn less than ca.30k was fairly activated compared with that in a bulk region, mainly due to the surface segregation of chain end groups. Tempereature dependent LFM and SVM measurement revealed that the surface glass transition temperature, Tg of the monodisperse PS film was lower than the bulk one, even though Mn was fairly large as 140k and also, that the time-temperature superposition was applicable to the surface relaxation process. The chain end group segregation at the air/PS interface was verified from the dynamic secondary ion mass spectroscopic (DSIM S) depth profiling of the proton and deuterium ion for the end-labeled deutrated-PS (dPS) film. These results suggest that the surface Tg is depressed due to an increase in free volume near surface region, being induced by the preferential surface localization of chain end groups.
