Abstract [en]

The composition and structure of a binary mixed self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of 3-aminopropyltiethoxysilane (APS, NH2(CH2)(3)Si-(OCH2CH3)(3)) and octadecyltrimethoxysilane (ODS, CH3(CH2)(17)Si(OCH3)(3)) on a silicon oxide surface have been characterized by water contact-angle measurements, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and sum frequency generation (SFG) vibrational spectroscopy. XPS demonstrated that APS in the mixed SAM is significantly enriched in comparison to that in solution, indicating the preferential adsorption of APS during the SAM formation. AFM observations showed that the mixed SAM becomes rougher. SFG revealed that the coadsorption of APS induced a conformation disordering in the ODS molecules present in the mixed SAM. The surface enrichment of APS has been explained in terms of differences in the surface adsorption rates of the two components as well as in the self-congregation states of APS molecules in the bulk solution. Furthermore, the structure of the water molecules on the mixed SAM surface in contact with the aqueous solutions at different pH's has also been studied. The results indicate that the mixed-SAM modified surface is positively charged at pH < 5 and negatively charged at pH > 7.
