The effect of water on the functionalization of mesoporous silica with 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane


Gartmann, N; Schütze, C; Ritter, H; Brühwiler, D (2010). The effect of water on the functionalization of mesoporous silica with 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane. Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, 1(1):379-382.

Abstract

The effect of water on the reaction of 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) with mesoporous silica is investigated on two model systems. A MCM-41 type material with a well-defined pore size is used to investigate changes in the pore size distribution upon reaction with APTES in toluene containing various amounts of water. It is found that with increasing amount of water, clustering of APTES occurs, leading to a non-uniform distribution of the grafted amino groups and a scarcely functionalized pore body. A second model system with defined particle morphology and one-dimensional channels is employed to visualize the distribution of the grafted amino groups by fluorescent labeling and confocal laser scanning microscopy. The combination of nitrogen sorption and confocal laser scanning microscopy provides valuable insights concerning the role of trace water in the functionalization of mesoporous silica with alkoxysilanes.

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.
