- The build-up of multilayers constructed from polyallylamine hydrochloride (PAH) and polyacrylic acid (PAA) under different pH conditions was continuously monitored using the quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation. The adsorbed amount of polymer as well as the amount of coupled water was determined. Furthermore, from dissipation measurements, it was possible to determine the visco-elastic properties of the adsorbed multilayer. These properties were highly dependent on the polyelectrolyte present in the outermost layer. The multilayer was far more rigid and elastic with PAA as the outermost layer. Furthermore, a link has been established between the conformability or rigidity of a multilayer covered surface and the adhesion between such surfaces. Adhesion measurements using the atomic force microscope showed a greater pull-off force when the more viscous PAH was present in the outermost layer.
