Abstract

The anomalous sorption in the thin films of fluoroalkyl-ended poly(ethylene glycol)s was discussed. The swelling behaviour of thin films of Rf-PEGs showed that the anomalies were related to the sorption in polymers. The sorption isotherms and transient sorption behaviour of thin films of Rf-PEG were observed using a quartz crystal resonator in humidity ramp and humidity step tests.
