J Nanosci Nanotechnol. 2014 Nov;14(11):8891-7.Hard donor atoms (N and O) containing macrocyclic ligand was synthesized and further functionalized with mesoporous SBA-15 materials by chemical modification method. The modification was achieved by the immobilization of 3-chloropropyltriethoxysilane (CIPTES) onto mesoporous silica surface followed by post grafting route. The resulting material (Py-Cy-SBA-15) has been characterized by low angle X-ray diffraction (XRD), nitrogen adsorption-desorption isotherm, Fourier-transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, 29Si and 13C CP MAS NMR spectroscopic analyses, Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and elemental analysis.
