General description

3-(Trimethoxysilyl)propyl methacrylate (TMSPMA) is a hydrophobic monomer. The presence of an additional functional group of acrylate facilitates TMSPMA for grafting polymerization on plastic surfaces. 3-(Trimethoxysilyl)propyl methacrylate undergoes first-order kinetic polymerization to form polyTMSPMA, which is a moisture stable polymer.

Application

3-(Trimethoxysilyl)propyl methacrylate has been used in the following applications:
  • Isoelectric focusing can lead to pH gradient formation resulting in the swelling or shrinking of gel casts. This can be prevented by using 3-(Trimethoxysilyl)propyl methacrylate to link polyacrylamide gels to glass plates covalently.
  • In situ hybridization using 3-(Trimethoxysilyl)propyl methacrylate along with poly-L-lysine is a faster and durable method to attach cells, microscopic sections, and total organs to slides/other glass surfaces.
  • 3-(Trimethoxysilyl)propyl methacrylate is also used in the preparation of organic/inorganic hybrid nanomaterials.
