The interface can be dramatically enhanced with a coupling agent

Silane coupling agents, which are synthetic hybrid inorganic-organic compounds, are used to promote adhesion between dissimilar materials.

How to Choose a Silane Coupling Agent

All silane coupling agents with three OR groups on silicon should bond equally well with an inorganic substrate. Our brand product line includes a variety of organofunctional alkoxysilanes.

Silanes have many other applications in dentistry

One of the most important aspects in the field of dentistry is adhesion. Adhesion can be enhanced through different mechanisms, most commonly by chemical and mechanical modifications of dental material surfaces.

Silane coupling agents and surface conditioning in dentistry

Silane coupling agents and surface conditioning in dentistry,In dental restorations, it is desirable to have durable and strong bonding between resin composite and dental restorative materials.

Nanoparticles incorporated in silane sol–gel coatings

Concentration of silane precursor is another key factor influencing on the correction protection properties of the silane films. Effects of silane concentration on the thickness of BTSE silane fresh and cured films are presented in Fig. 23.7.


Commercial production of the first grades of precipitated silica took place in 1948. At this time, natural rubber had barely relinquished its position as the principal, if not only, elastomer in commercial use.


Isobutyric acid is a branched ftty acid comprising propanoic acid carrying a methyl branch at C-2. It has a role as a volatile oill component, a plant metabolite and a Dapnia magna metabolite. It is a branched-chain saturated fatty acid, a methy-branched fatty acid and a fatty acid 4:0. Itis a conjugate acid of an isobutyrate.

Zeolite-based mixed matrix membranes for hazardous gas removal

Typical silane coupling agents include (3-aminopropyl)-triethoxymethyl silane (APTES), (3-aminopropyl)-diethoxymethyl silane (APDEMS), and aminopropyldimethylethoxy silane (APDMES).
