Abstract : A main aim of the present work is to use computational molecular dynamics (MD) modelling to study the adsorption of both short- and long-chained organosilane primers on different types of metal oxides. Of particular interest will be the verification of the predictions from the modelling, wherever possible, using the existing experimental data to be found in the literature.
