Mass loss of functionalized nanoparticles after the TGA process
MPPTS GPS
Mass ratio Mass loss (%) Mass ratio Mass loss (%)
Silica in ludox TM-40 0.491 14.16 0.460 13.83
0.246 11.12 0.230 7.71
0.123 7.36 0.115 5.85
Silica in self-made nanoparticle solution 0.123 7.18 0.115 5.52

Mass ratio represents the mass ratio of the reacting silane and silica; mass loss represents the mass loss percentage caused by the organic components after the functionalized nanoparticles are burnt by the TGA instrument
