Abstract: In this study, we modified silica nanoparticles with bis[3-(trimethoxysilyl)propyl]amine (BTMA) silane coupling agent to introduce secondary amino groups on the silica surface. After modification of silica, we investigated effects of different types of (meth)acrylate group containing monomers on the Michael addition reaction to introduce reactive (meth)acrylate groups on the BTMA modified silica surface. We used two kinds of (meth)acrylate monomers, trimethylolpropane ethoxylate triacrylate (TMPET) …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
