Perfluoropolyether (PFPE) lubricants were chemically modified to maximize their thermal stability for application in heat assisted magnetic recording (HAMR). Benzophenone (BP) was introduced to react with the hydroxyl end group in PFPE to act as a free radical stabilizer. Modification of the PFPE by benzophenone was confirmed by evaluation of the chemical shift and the area change of the hydroxyl peak in the 1 H NMR spectra. The thermal stability of modified PFPE lubricants was studied using thermo-gravimetry. The improvement in the thermal stability was found to be a function of the amount of substituted hydroxyl groups in PFPE.
