Abstract

High quality methoxy-terminated monolayers containing a tri(ethylene oxide) moiety were formed on Si(111)–H surfaces in thermal hydrosilylation reactions. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, contact angle, and X-ray reflectivity measurements suggested that the suboptimal protein anti-fouling properties of these Si–C linked monolayers were due to a reduced lateral packing density of the chains resulting in a disordered layer with insufficient internal and external hydrophilicity.

* The detection of oxygen is more sensitive than that of silicon in XPS. Thus, oxide can be detected more readily in the oxygen 1s region than in the silicon 2p region. The level of oxide detected here was considered to be insignificant. Even samples prepared from non-functionalized alkenes often reveal similar levels of surface oxidation.
