Products | Hydrophobic SMART TEM Grids
Hydrophobic TEM grids are functionalized with alkyl chains (n=8) to create a hydrophobic surface with a contact angle >100°. They are invaluable for the deposition of materials from organic solvents or for materials that have an intrinsically hydrophobic surface during TEM sample preparation. Hydrophobic grids prevent aggregation of hydrophobic materials while drying. Examples of these types of materials include carbon nanotubes and fullerenes, quantum dots, FIB lamella, DNA and any alkylated materials. Please see our applications page for more information.
Hydrophobic SMART TEM grids are available with SiO2 and Si3N4 membranes or as Si frames.
