Journal Article
Manerova, J., Rocher, V., Evans, D. J., Francesconi, M. G., Francesconi, M. G., Kinnear, M., & Manerova, J. (2014). Direct amine-functionalisation of γ-Fe2O3nanoparticles. Dalton transactions : an international journal of inorganic chemistry / RSoC, 43(7), (2948-2952). doi:10.1039/c3dt52386a. ISSN 1477-9226

A novel and simple preparation of amine-modified γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles is described. The presence of amine groups on the surface, instead of hydroxyl groups, will allow conjugation of biologically active molecules to the iron oxide nanoparticles with... Read More

Silicon imidonitride aerogel exhibiting macro- and meso-dual porosity (2012)
Journal Article
Hector, A. L., Rocher, V., & Kelly, S. M. (2012). Silicon imidonitride aerogel exhibiting macro- and meso-dual porosity. Microporous and Mesoporous Materials, 156, (196-201). doi:10.1016/j.micromeso.2012.02.041. ISSN 1387-1811

Porous silicon imidonitride aerogels have been produced by combining a sol-gel process based on [Si(NH2)(NMe2)3] and ammonia that is known for producing xerogels with controlled mesoporosity, with a supercritical drying process using diethylamine to... Read More
