Assemblies of poly(styrene/⇌-tert-butoxy-ω-vinyl-benzyl-poryglycidol) Microspheres with different diameters deposited on mica plates

Abstract

Formation of poly(styrene/α-tert-butoxy-ω-vinyl-benzyl-polyglycidol) microsphere assemblies on mica plates modified with 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane was investigated. Microsphere assemblies contained two types of particles similar with respect of their chemical structure but with different diameters (D n = 1000 and 350 nm). Methods of particle deposition included: deposition from water suspension of a mixture of small and large particles on mica plates placed at the bottom of suspension container, deposition of particles from a drop of ethanol suspension (containing large and small microspheres) placed on the mica substrate, deposition of microspheres on modified mica plates crossing the liquid-air interface-sequential deposition of large and small particles, and one-batch deposition from a mixed water suspension of large and small microspheres. Deposition from water suspension containing large and small microspheres on plates placed on the bottom of suspension container yielded assemblies with large particles randomly distributed among the small ones. Fraction of large particles in adsorbed particle assembly was smaller than fraction of large particles in suspension. Particle assemblies prepared by placement of ethanol suspension of large and small microspheres on mica were composed of quite regularly distributed large particles among the small ones. A two step process consisting of withdrawal of mica plate from water suspension of large particles and then on using this plate as substrate in a second step during which the plate was withdrawn from suspension of small particles yielded particle assemblies containing aggregates of large particles randomly distributed among the small ones. Withdrawal of mica plates from water suspension of large and small microspheres resulted in particle assemblies composed of regularly distributed stripes of large and small microspheres. Formation of the described above microsphere assemblies is possible only in case of reversible adsorption of particles.
