Initial attempts to apply infrared reflection spectroscopy to a study of the chemical changes occurring on each component surface of a copper- polyethylene interface during the early stages of oxidation are described. The reflection techniques show that oxidation is primarily initiated at the copper- polyethylene interface and that the inhibition of the copper effect by copper deactivators, such as oxanilide, appears to occur initially by surface reactions on the copper. The study indicates that infrared reflection spectroscopy has a significant potential for application to the examination of chemical changes at metal-polymer interfaces.
