Gels prepared from solutions of B72 acrylic resin and methyltrimethoxysilane (MTMOS) are examined by SEM. Four initial mixtures - 0,2,5 and 10% w/v B72/MTMOS - produced gels whose fractured surfaces exhibit distinct features. Scanning electron microscopy shows that neat MTMOS produces a glass-like gel while the addition of B72 creates MTMOS-derived spheres in a “connective tissue” of acrylic resin. These particle sphere/acrylic resin solids are mechanically weak composites.
We present STM and photoemission studies of the reactions of Si(100)-(2×1) and Si(111)–(7×7) with NH3. STM allows us to image the occupied and unoccupied states of the reacting systems and to obtain electronic spectra with atomic lateral resolution. Thus, for the first time, a surface chemical reaction can be probed at the atomic level. We find that both surfaces are reactive even at 100K. However, both the extent of the reaction and the reaction products at 300K are different on the two surfaces. STM also shows that while surface dangling bonds are essential for low-temperature reactivity, not all triplycoordinated Si sites are chemically equivalent. On the 7×7 surface the rest-atoms are more reactive than center-adatoms which, in turn, are more reactive than corner-adatoms.
