|Titolo:||Raman investigation of surface OH-species in porous silica|
|Data di pubblicazione:||2003|
|Abstract:||Surface in porous media has a key role for both theoretical and technological aspects. A comparative analysis of the surface vibrational properties of sol-gel synthesized porous silica monoliths with different porosity is presented. Raman spectroscopy investigation of the fundamental O-H stretching range (3000-3800 cm(-1)) reveals a dependence of the surface reactivity on pore dimensions. The pore surface curvature plays an important role affecting the hydrogen-bonding interaction between surface hydroxyls and modifying the distribution of the OH species at the surface; the relative contribution of interacting hydroxyls and adsorbed water with respect to isolated species is larger in smaller pores. Water and silanol vibrations were singled out as a function of porosity.|
