1. A method of depositing a film, the method comprising:
exposing at least a portion of a substrate surface to a first precursor comprising a multi-functional amine to form an amine-containing film on the substrate surface; and
exposing the amine-containing film to a second precursor comprising at least one silicon atom and at least one reactive moiety to form an SiCON film on at least a portion of the substrate surface, the second precursor comprising a compound having the formula
