Application

Tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) is an oxygen containing precursor of Si used for the deposition of:
  • Si oxide
  • Oxycarbide
  • Doped silicate
  • Silanol
  • Siloxane polymer
  • Organosilicon thin films

The films can be deposited at low temperatues (<250 °C). TEOS is also used to deposit mesoporous and nanoporous thin films of silica. These porous films can be doped during deposition to further enhance their properties.
Commonly used as a precursor to prepare xerogel
Will interact with dodecylamine in the formation of intercalation compounds of H+-magadiite and used in a study of mixed-metal bioactive glasses.
