dc.description.abstract A commercial formulation of styrene-acrylonitrile copolymer (SAN) sheets were surface-modified by using non-thermal radiofrequency and microwave plasma treatments. In order to evaluate the possible improvement of SAN surface properties, the modification was performed using oxygen and tetraflouromethane (CF4) discharges under different treatment durations and output powers. The untreated and treated samples were chemically and morphologically characterised by X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), and surface charge was evaluated by zeta potential (ζ) measurements. In addition, water contact angle measurements were employed for evaluating the extent of hydrophilicity and hydrophobicity on the treated specimens. The overall outcome indicated drastic chemical and physical surface changes, which vary according to the carrier gas. Surface became noticeably hydrophilic after few seconds of oxygen plasma treatments, whilst the surface became hydrophobic after the CF4 treatments. The present approach might serve as a feasible and promising method to alter the surface properties of styrene-acrylonitrile copolymers. © 2015 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. en
