Abstract : Infrared spectra were recorded in situ of octadecanol (A), octadecylamine (B), and octadecanedioic acid (C) adsorbed from CCl4 solutions onto highly degassed silica. Adsorbed A interacted with silanols and caused a shift of the OH group of the silanol band. B interacted extensively and strongly with silanols and some B was chemisorbed. In contrast, C adsorption was slight and the interaction with silanols weak; apparently some C polymer chains were broken. As interactions with silanols cause a perturbation of the silanol band and the extent of the perturbation is a measure of the strength of the adsorption, it may be possible to use the shift of the OH group as criterion in considering competitive adsorption processes occurring on hydroxylated surfaces.
