Anal Bioanal Chem. 2007 Jan;387(2):561-6. Epub 2006 Nov 24.Silanisation of quartz substrate surfaces with a mixture of two chlorosilanes, namely trimethylchlorosilane and 7-octenyldimethylchlorosilane, leads to sensitive coatings for volatile organic compounds (VOC) on surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices. In this way we created monolayers of molecular cavities engulfing the analytes according to host-guest chemistry directly on the device surfaces, and also confirmed the occurrence of such cavities by molecular modelling.
