The surface of silica nanoparticles has been modified using four sets of reagents: trimethoxysilanes (TMS), methoxysilanes (MS), dimethoxysilanes (DMS), and polydimethylsiloxanes (PDMS). Characterization of the organic loading and structure has been carried out. Glass slides have been coated with the organosilicas, and the wetting/topographic properties studied. Especially for the TMS organosilica series, the wetting behaviour of the coatings changes from very hydrophobic to superhydrophobic… Expand
