Abstract

The density profile in a thin cross-linked polyisoprene (PI) film spin-coated on a quartz substrate in n-hexane was examined by specular neutron reflectivity. We found two layers with different PI densities at the substrate interface. The characteristics of the layers are discussed in terms of bound rubber typically associated with the field of rubber materials and adsorbed layers typically associated with the field of glassy materials.
