  • Aryl-, ethynyl- and alkyl-bridged polysilsesquioxanes were prepared by the hydrolysis and condensation of the respective bridged triethoxysilanes under both acidic and basic conditions. Gelation of the resulting sols can take place at concentrations as low as 0.02 M in tetrahydrofuran. The gels can be air dried to afford xerogels or extracted with supercritical carbon dioxide to give high surface area aerogels. The materials were characterized by solid state {sup 13}C and {sup 29}Si CP MAS NMR spectroscopies, gas sorption porosimetry, and thermal gravimetric analysis. The bridged polysilsesquioxanes offer the opportunity to prepare hybrid organic-inorganic materials with properties unique from othermore » siloxane network materials and silica gels.« less

  • We demonstrate the applications of several novel techniques in solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (SSNMR) to the structural studies of mesoporous organic-inorganic hybrid catalytic materials. Most of these latest capabilities of solid-state NMR were made possible by combining fast magic angle spinning (at {ge} 40 kHz) with new multiple RF pulse sequences. Remarkable gains in sensitivity have been achieved in heteronuclear correlation (HETCOR) spectroscopy through the detection of high-{gamma} ({sup 1}H) rather than low-{gamma} (e.g., {sup 13}C, {sup 15}N) nuclei. This so-called indirect detection technique can yield through-space 2D {sup 13}C-{sup 1}H HETCOR spectra of surface species under natural abundancemore » within minutes, a result that earlier has been out of reach. The {sup 15}N-{sup 1}H correlation spectra of species bound to a surface can now be acquired, also without isotope enrichment. The first indirectly detected through-bond 2D {sup 13}C-{sup 1}H spectra of solid samples are shown, as well. In the case of 1D and 2D {sup 29}Si NMR, the possibility of generating multiple Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill (CPMG) echoes during data acquisition offered time savings by a factor of ten to one hundred. Examples of the studied materials involve mesoporous silica and mixed oxide nanoparticles functionalized with various types of organic groups, where solid-state NMR provides the definitive characterization.« less
  • Pairing of a Keggin or Lindqvist polyoxometalate (POM) anion with an appropriate tetraalkylphosphonium cation is shown to yield the first members of a new family of ionic liquids (ILs). Detailed characterization of one of them, an ambient-temperature 'liquid POM' comprising the Lindqvist salt of the trihexyl(tetradecyl) phosphonium cation, by voltammetry, viscometry, conductimetry, and thermal analysis indicates that it exhibits conductivity and viscosity comparable to those of the one previously described inorganic-organic POM-IL hybrid but with substantially improved thermal stability.
  • Organic–inorganic nanocomposite materials have been synthesized via sol–gel. They consist of an inorganic SiO{sub 2} matrix, in which different percentages of poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) have been incorporated. The formation of H-bonds among the carbonyl groups of the polymer chains and Si–OH group of the inorganic matrix has been proved by means of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) analysis and has been confirmed by solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). X-Ray diffraction (XRD) analysis highlighted the amorphous nature of the synthesized materials. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) micrograph and atomic force microscope (AFM) topography showed their homogeneous morphology and nanostructure nature. Considering the opportunitymore » to synthesize these hybrid materials under microgravity conditions by means of magnetic levitation, superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) magnetometry has been used to quantify their magnetic susceptibility. This measure has shown that the SiO{sub 2}/PCL hybrid materials are diamagnetic and that their diamagnetic susceptibility is independent of temperature and increases with the PCL amount. - Graphical abstract: Characterization and magnetic properties of SiO{sub 2}/PCL organic–inorganic hybrid materials synthesized via sol–gel. FT-IR, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy; solid-state NMR: solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance; SQUID: superconducting quantum interference device. - Highlights: • Sol–gel synthesis of SiO{sub 2}/PCL amorphous class I organic–inorganic hybrid materials. • FT-IR and NMR analyses show the hydrogen bonds formation between SiO{sub 2} and PCL. • AFM and SEM analyses confirm that the SiO{sub 2}/PCL are homogenous hybrid materials. • The SQUID measures show that the simples are diamagnetic. • Diamagnetic susceptibility of SiO{sub 2}/PCL materials increases with the PCL amount.« less
