Quantitative determination of the chemical composition of silica-poly(norbornene) nanocomposites.


Nanoparticle hybrid materials consisting of a silica core surrounded by a poly(norbornene) brush have been prepared by ring opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP). A quantitative determination of each stage of composite formation has been accomplished, including a determination of the density of surface-bound functional groups, catalyst molecules, and… (More)
