Abstract

In this paper, we report a clever approach permitting, in one step, the synthesis of ordered (hexagonal phase) mesoporous silica functionalized with iodopropyl groups [I(CH2)3] located in the pore channels. This material was obtained by the hydrolysis and co-condensation of tetraethylorthosilicate (TEOS) and iodopropyltriethoxysilane (I(CH2)3Si(OEt)3) in the presence of P123 as a non-ionic structure-directing agent and hydrogen iodide as an acid catalyst. All materials were characterised by X-ray diffraction measurements, transmission electron spectroscopy, nitrogen adsorption analyses, elemental analyses, and solid-state 13C and 29Si NMR spectroscopy. The accessibility and reactivity of this functional group was investigated, showing the advantage of the iodo group for the introduction of bulky or hydrophilic groups.
