Surface modification of glass beads with an aminosilane monolayer

Arslan, G., Özmen, M., Gündüz, B., Zhang, X. and Ersöz, M. (2006) Surface modification of glass beads with an aminosilane monolayer Turkish Journal of Chemistry, 30, (2), pp. 203-210.

Record type: Article


Surface modification of glass beads with a self-assembled monolayer of (3-Aminopropyl)-triethoxysilane (APTES) was investigated. Characterisation of the self-assembled monolayer was confirmed by a reaction between amine terminal groups and thionylchloride of Rhodamine-B dye using fluorescence microscopy. Quantitative 3-dimensional profiling was obtained for all modification processes by converting microscopic images to numerical values. The reaction steps were also analysed using infrared spectroscopy (FTIR).
