Analytical investigation of the chemical reactivity and stability of aminopropyl-grafted silica in aqueous medium.
The stability of APS in ethanol and that of mercaptopropyl-grafted silica (MPS) in water have been briefly considered and discussed with respect to practical applications of silica-based organic-inorganic hybrids, e.g., in separation science or in the field of electrochemical sensors. Expand
Carbon Paste Electrodes in Facts, Numbers, and Notes: A Review on the Occasion of the 50‐Years Jubilee of Carbon Paste in Electrochemistry and Electroanalysis
This article reviews the electrochemistry and electroanalytical applications of carbon paste-based electrodes, sensors, and detectors on the occasion of the half-of-century anniversary since theExpand
Mesoporous organosilica adsorbents: nanoengineered materials for removal of organic and inorganic pollutants
A review with ca. 400 references is provided dealing with the use of mesoporous silica and organically-modified silica-based materials for removal of inorganic and organic pollutants from aqueousExpand
Electrochemically assisted self-assembly of mesoporous silica thin films.
Electrochemistry is likely to induce self-assembly of surfactant-templated (organo)silica thin films on various conducting supports, homogeneously over wide areas, opening the way to electrochemically driven nanolithography for designing complex patterns of widely accessible mesostructured materials.

Exciting new directions in the intersection of functionalized sol–gel materials with electrochemistry
The implications of organically-modified silica-based materials in electrochemical science is reviewed along with some selected recent trends in the field of functionalized and sol–gel silicaExpand
Sorption of Iodide on Cuprite (Cu2O)
The interactions of iodide ions with cuprite (Cu2O) surfaces were studied by combining batch experiments and surface analyses. The evolution of iodide uptake with pH was investigated. TheExpand
Oriented Mesoporous Silica Films Obtained by Electro-Assisted Self-Assembly (EASA)
Highly ordered and vertically oriented mesoporous silica films can be generated by electro-assisted self-assembly (EASA). The method involves the electrogeneration of hydroxide ions at an electrodeExpand
