Application

Hexadecylamine (HDA) can be used:
  • To prepare a mixture of hexadecylamine-trioctylphosphine oxide-trioctylphosphine (HDA-TOPO-TOP) used in the synthesis of highly luminescent monodisperse CdSe and CdSe/ZnS nanocrystals.
  • As a capping agent in the synthesis of copper nanocrystals with different shapes by reducing CuCl2 with glucose.
  • As an organophilic alkylamine in organoclay in the preparation of a polyimide nanocomposite.
  • To form a membrane with vanadium oxide (V2O5/HDA) as the sensing layer of the extended gate H+-ion sensitive field effect transistor (EGFET) device.
  • As both reducing and stabilizing agent in the preparation of HDA capped Au and Ag nanoparticles applicable in surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS).
  • As a template in the synthesis of MCM-41 analog silica beads.
  • Along with lauric acid used in the preparation of cobalt (Co) nanorod superlattices with magnetic properties.

The hydrogenolysis of [Cu2{(iPrN)2(CCH3)}2] in the presence of hexadecylamine (HDA) or tetradecylphosphonic acid (TDPA) in toluene leads to 6-9 nm copper nanocrystals. Solution NMR spectroscopy has been used to describe the nanoparticle surface chemistry during the dynamic phenomenon of air oxidation....
