Macroclusters of phenol adsorbed on silica in cyclohexane induced by surface silanol groups

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

In this study, adsorption of phenol from cyclohexane onto silica surface was investigated by a combination of attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR), colloidal probe atomic force microscopy (AFM), and adsorption isotherm measurements. ATR-FTIR measurements revealed that silanol groups are necessary for the formation of phenol macrocluster on the surface. Comparison of force curve measurement with adsorption isotherm measurement indicated the lower density of adsorption layer than that of bulk phenol.
