ABSTRACT:  Polyethylene surfaces were treated with I2 plasma. From ESCA analysis, it became apparent that iodine atoms were bound chemically to the surface of polyethylene substrate by the treatment of I2 plasma. Also, iodine bonded chemically to polyethylene increased by the exposure of I2 Vapor after I2-plasma treatment of the substrate. The reaction of I2-plasma treated polyethylene with aminoalcohol made the polyethylene substrate hydrophilic.
