Génération électro-assistée de films à base de silice : fonctionnalisation, mésostructuration et applications analytiques

Abstract : The study deals with various aspects of a novel method of sol-gel synthesis : the electro-assisted generation of functionalized and/or mesostructured silica thin films, and their applications in analytical electrochemistry. Sol-gel-derived silica films functionnalized with amine or thiol groups have been electrogenerated on gold electrodes. The formation of a partial self-assembled monolayer of mercaptopropyltrimethoxysilane (MPTMS) on gold led to a silica film adhering well to the electrode surface owing to the MPTMS acting as a « molecular glue ». The whole process was characterized by two successive distinct rates, starting by a slow deposition stage leading to thin deposits, which was followed by a much faster film growing in the form of macroporous coatings. The use of these modified electrodes was considered as a voltammetric sensor for copper(II). By adding a surfactant in the synthesis medium, it's possible to electrogenerate mesostructured silica films with hexagonal structure with pore channels oriented perpendiculary to the substrate (which is difficult to get by other methods). The electrochemically-induced-self-assembly of surfactant-templated silica thin films can be applied to various conducting supports. The broad interest of the novel method was demonstrated by its ability to produce homogeneous deposits of silica on non-planar surfaces or heterogeneous substrates, what is difficult by the traditional techniques of film deposition. Finally, a preliminary approach has been proposed in order to apply the electrodeposition process coupled with a scanning electrochemical microscope in order to get localized sol-gel deposits at the micrometric size level on gold.
