Synthesis and properties of ellipsoidal hematite/silicone core-shell particles
- 213 Downloads
Monodispersed ellipsoidal hematite particles were synthesized and coated with silicone using a silane-coupling agent, phenyltriethoxysilane. The thickness of the silicone shell was controlled by the concentration of phenyltriethoxysilane and the presence of n-hexadecyltrimethylammonium chloride, which was thought to modify the surface properties of the hematite particles to be organophilic. The hematite/silicone core-shell particles were strongly hydrophobic and had a good dispersibility and stability in toluene. Hollow ellipsoidal silicone particles were obtained by the dissolution of hematite with hydrochloric acid from the core-shell particles.
