Abstract: This research examines bonding methodology, surface coverage and silanol conversion efficiencies on the preparation of silica hydride (SiH) intermediate from triethoxysilane (TES) and dimethylmethoxysilane (DMMS) using sc-CO(2) and dioxane as reaction solvent. Under sc-CO(2) reaction conditions (at temperature and pressure of 100 °C, 414 bar, respectively and 3h reaction time), the surface coverages of SiH (evaluated from %C obtained from elemental analysis) prepared with DMMS (3.39 μmol/m(2)) and TES (4.46 μm…
