Previous work has shown that organosilica-based xerogels have the potential to control biofouling. In this study, modifications of chemistry were investigated with respect to their resistance to marine slimes and to settlement of barnacle cyprids. Adhesion force measurements of bovine serum albumin (BSA)-coated atomic force microscopy (AFM) tips to xerogel(More)
Four-component xerogel films consisting of 1 mole-% n-octadecyltrimethoxysilane (C18) and 50 mole-% tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) in combination with 1-24 mole-% tridecafluoro-1,1,2,2-tetrahydrooctyltriethoxysilane (TDF) and 25-48 mole-% n-octyltriethoxysilane (C8) and a 1:49:50 mole-% C18/TDF/TEOS were prepared. Settlement of barnacle cyprids and removal of(More)
Novel derivatives of α-truxillic acid with a camphor framework were synthesized and evaluated for their in vivo analgesic activity. α-Truxillic acid derivatives were prepared via solvent-free photocatalyzed [2+2] cyclodimerization of (E)-cinnamic acid. Target compounds were obtained through the substitution of –Cl or –OH groups in α-truxillic acid. The(More)
