Porphyrins are widely studied for their use as catalysts and in dye sensitized solar cells. In these systems the porphyrins are bound to metal oxide surfaces as a functionalizing layer.
We study the binding mechanism in the porphyrin - metal oxide interface on TiO2 and Co3O4. Special emphasis of our work is focused on the exchange process of organic stabilizing molecules with porphyrins. This process is studied using a variation of different scattering techniques. The talk will focus on the characterization of the exchange reaction on the surface of nanoparticles.
Therefore, the combination of small angle x-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS and SANS) experiments will be a key element. These measurements are well suited to study core/shell systems. X-rays interact mainly with electrons and therefore SAXS yields information about the inorganic core of the nanoparticles. Neutrons on the other hand are very sensitive to hydrogen and therefore SANS is well suited to get information about the organic stabilizer shell.
The talk will focus on SAXS/SANS measurements and give an overview over complimentary technique. Furthermore, their usage in the characterization of the morphology of the produced particles and the ligand exchange to porphyrins will be presented.
