The 5,10,15-tri-(p-dodecanoxyphenyl)-20-(p-hydroxyphenyl)- and 5,10,15,20-tetrakis-(p-dodecanoxyphenyl)cobalt porphyrin complexes were synthesized, purified and characterized. Silica substrates were functionalized with a covalent 4-ClCH(2)C(6)H(4)SiCl(3) monolayer. Additional covalent bonding of the 5,10,15-tri-(p-dodecanoxyphenyl)-20-(p-hydroxyphenyl)-cobalt porphyrin to the silylated substrates was further achieved. The monolayer surface chemical characterization was carried out by X-ray photoelectron measurements. Both the Co 2p and N 1s spectra are evident. The NO(2) sensing capability of the present cobalt porphyrin systems, at ppm levels, has been demonstrated. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
