Anatase nanoparticles synthesized by the sol-gel method were surface-functionalized with long alkyl chain coupling agents as compatibilizers for a nonpolar environment, containing different anchor groups for surface interaction namely phosphonate (dodecyl phosphonate), carboxylate (dodecanoic acid), sulfate (sodium dodecyl sulphate), and amine (dodecyl(More)
Poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) elastomer films synthesized through a cross-linking reaction between hydroxyl-terminated or vinyl-terminated PDMS have been homogeneously doped with silica-coated Au nanoparticles. The nanocomposite synthesis involves mixing a preformed colloid of surface-modified metal nanoparticles with the elastomer film precursors. The(More)
The ordering of dodecyl-chain self-assembled monolayers (SAM) on different nanoscopic surfaces was investigated by FT-IR studies. As model systems plane-crystal-shaped ZrO(2) nanoparticles and spherical SiO(2) nanoparticles were examined. The type of capping agent was chosen dependent on the substrate, therefore dodecylphosphonic acid and(More)
By reaction of the hexabromoheptasilane MeSi(SiMe(2)SiMeBr(2))(3) (1 a) with H(2)O, H(2)S, NH(3), and H(2)NMe the heptasilaadamantanes MeSi(SiMe(2)SiMeO)(3) (4), MeSi(SiMe(2)SiMeS)(3) (5), MeSi(SiMe(2)SiMeNH)(3) (6 a), and MeSi(SiMe(2)SiMeNMe)(3) (6 b), respectively, were prepared in good to moderate yields. Molecular structures of 4, 5, 6 a, and 6 b were(More)
The synthesis of well-defined polymer architectures is of major importance for the development of complex functional materials. In this contribution, we discuss the synthesis of a range of multifunctional star-shaped tosylates as potential initiators for the living cationic ring-opening polymerization (CROP) of 2-oxazolines resulting in star-shaped(More)
The temperature-dependent adsorption on hydroxyapatite (HAP) of the Tb complexes of two macrocyclic DOTA-like ligands containing HAP-binding phosphonate groups was studied by a radiotracer method using 160Tb as the label. One ligand (DOTP) contains four separate phosphonate groups, while the second ligand (BPPED) contains a single bisphosphonate group(More)
