Photo-responsive properties of azobenzene small molecules in sol-gel hybrid TiO(2)/ormosil organic-inorganic matrices.

Abstract

Azodye-doped TiO(2)/ormosil hybrid materials for photonic applications were prepared by a low temperature sol-gel process from an organic-inorganic hybrid system. Acid-catalyzed solutions of gamma-glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane and methyltrimethoxysilane mixed with tetrapropyl orthotitanate were used as hybrid matrix precursors. The trans-cis-trans… (More)
