Immobilization of Cobaloxime on MCM- 41

Document Type: Research Paper



This work reports, immobilization the Cobaloxime [Co (DH) Cl;DH,dimethylglyoximato)] onto the MCM- .The surface of MCM- was initially functionalized with -aminopropyltrimethoxysilane and -pyridine. For the electrostatic immobilization this was reacted with Cobaloxime and immobilization was achieved by an electrostatic interaction between the Co Cobaloxime and the N of the pyridine and NH amine. Additional information was obtained by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), BET, ICP and DR-UV-Vis, FT-IR spectroscopy.
