Synthesis and characterization of hybrid aminopropyl silane-based coatings on stainless steel substrates
Transparent and homogeneous hybrid aminopropyl silane-based coatings on steel were prepared by the sol–gel method using hydrolyzed γ-APS as a precursor. The coatings were fabricated by dip coating, and the effect of pH, water/silane ratio and solvent/silane ratio during the coating process was inves...
AFM measurements of forces between silica surfaces
Interaction forces and adhesion between a silica sphere and a flat silica surface in aqueous electrolyte solutions were investigated by atomic force microscopy. The forces were measured as a function of surface separation, pH and NaCl concentration as the surfaces were approaching each other. The ad...
