Theoretical Models of Chemisorption of Ions and Small Molecules on Polymers
The application of current theories of chemisorption to polymers is reviewed. Using as a reference a very simple example the concepts of charge transfer, surface molecule, virtual state are introduced. The rôle of sites and of geometrical relaxation, as well as of polarization, is discussed with a view to laying the ground for the interpretation of the time-dependent properties of chemisorbed species: changes in optical spectra, residence times.
