Direct synthesis and fluorescent imaging of bifunctionalized mesoporous iodopropyl-silica


Ramm, J H; Gartmann, N; Brühwiler, D (2010). Direct synthesis and fluorescent imaging of bifunctionalized mesoporous iodopropyl-silica. Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, 345(2):200-205.

Abstract

The co-condensation of 3-iodopropyltrimethoxysilane and tetraethoxysilane with an additional substituted trimethoxysilane (RTMS) in the presence of Pluronic P123 and hydrogen iodide yields bifunctionalized mesoporous silica. The pore size distribution of these materials depends on the nature of the RTMS additive. Excellent results in terms of a narrow pore size distribution were obtained with methyltrimethoxysilane. A particularly interesting bifunctionalized mesoporous material is formed by the co-inclusion of iodopropyl and aminopropyl moieties. The complementary reactivity of these two functional groups is demonstrated by the selective labeling of the amino-iodo-functionalized mesoporous silica with 2-hydroxy substituted nile red and fluorescein isothiocyanate, allowing further characterization of the functional group distribution by confocal laser scanning microscopy.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
