Properties of Water Confined in Periodic Mesoporous Organosilicas: Nanoimprinting the Local Structure.
The molecular mobility of water confined in periodic mesoporous organosilicas (PMOs) is influenced by the polarity of the organic moiety, and Multidimensional solid-state NMR spectroscopy directly probes the spatial arrangement of water inside the pores. Expand
Effects of Partial Crystallization on the Dynamics of Water in Mesoporous Silica
We use differential scanning calorimetry, broadband dielectric spectroscopy, and deuteron nuclear magnetic resonance to investigate water dynamics in MCM-41 pores with a diameter of d = 2.5 nm. AtExpand
Freezing and melting of water confined in silica nanopores.
This work focuses on recent studies of the limits of freezing and melting of water in the cylindrical pores of ordered mesoporous silicas with pore diameters in the range of 2-10 nm, based on vapor sorption measurements, calorimetric studies, NMR spectroscopy and cryoporometry, and neutron diffraction studies.

2H NMR study on temperature-dependent water dynamics in amino-acid functionalized silica nanopores.
The water reorientation is slowest for the Lys functionalization, followed by Ala and Glu and, finally, the native silica pores, where this span is largely independent of the temperature in the range ∼200-250 K. Expand
Water Transport in Periodic Mesoporous Organosilica Materials
Water transport in periodic mesoporous organosilicas (PMOs) was studied using pulsed field gradient NMR. A series of isogeometric PMO materials with different chemical compositions of the pore wallsExpand
Capillary rise of water in hydrophilic nanopores.
The capillary rise of water in three-dimensional networks of hydrophilic silica pores with 3.5 nm and 5 nm mean radii is reported on to reflect the structural-thermodynamic partitioning in strongly silica bound water layers and capillary condensed water in the pore center. Expand
Extension and Limits of Cryoscopy for Nanoconfined Solutions.
Investigating the phase behavior of aqueous solutions of glycerol confined in MCM-41 and SBA-15 nanoporous matrixes by calorimetry reveals that the water activity strongly deviates from the bulk solution with the same composition, indicating the possible role of concentration heterogeneities in determining the onset of ice freezing in strongly nanoconfined solutions.

Reorientation of Deeply Cooled Water in Mesoporous Silica: NMR Studies of the Pore-Size Dependence.
Above and below the no-man's land of water, the pore-size-independent correlation times τp of confined water are consistent with those of the bulk liquid, suggesting that a dynamical process that is a characteristic feature of water is probe. Expand
Structure and energetics of water-silanol binding on the surface of silicalite-1: quantum chemical calculations.
The results show that the most stable conformation takes place when a water molecule forms two hydrogen bonds with two silanols, with only one silanol lying on the opening of the pore of the straight channel. Expand
Molecular dynamics in grafted layers of poly(dimethylsiloxane)
Dielectric relaxation spectroscopy (10−1 Hz to 106 Hz) is employed to study the molecular dynamics of poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS, Mw=1.7×105 g mol−1 and Mw=9.6×104 g mol−1) as grafted films withExpand
