Atmospheric pressure plasma jet was employed to improve adhesion between polypropylene (PP) column wall and monolith used in chromatography. Different treatment conditions for modification of PP tube were used and the effects of treatment were analysed with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). Modified surfaces had higher oxygen content and surface was covered with small grain like structures.
