Buried aluminum/polymer interfaces were studied using a spectroelectrochemical experimental setup based on simultaneous in situ attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) and electrical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). Transport of water and electrolyte through the polymer film to the aluminum/polymer interface and oxidation/corrosion of aluminum was followed by ATR-FTIR, while the impedance behavior of the system was simultaneously studied by EIS. As the ATR-FTIR technique is specific for the aluminum/polymer interfacial region while EIS takes into account alterations of both the polymer bulk and the interface, the combined setup provides complementary information of the system investigated.
