Chrysotile and its dimethylsilyl (DMS) and dimethylphenylsilyl (DMPS) derivatives were studied by Fourier transform infrared–photoacoustic spectroscopy. In the Si–O stretching region of chrysotile a new band was revealed at 985 cm−1, besides absorptions at 1083, 1028, and 947 cm−1. The Si–O stretching frequencies did not undergo major changes in the DMS derivative, but the 985- and 1028-cm−1 peaks were undetected in DMPS due to the HCl attack on chrysotile tetrahedral sheets. Similar effects were observed in the region 900–400 cm−1, by a decrease in intensities of the 600- and 642-cm−1 Mg-OH libration modes in the DMPS spectrum, indicating also a HCl attack on the octahedral sheet. The Si–C band at 800 cm−1 in the spectra of both DMS and DMPS was accompanied by minor components. DMPS showed a strong peak at 813 cm−1 assigned to a Si–phenyl vibration. A sharp peak at 1263 cm−1 in the DMS spectrum was ascribed to a diagnostic C–H bending mode of the dimethylsilyl groups in DMS. The complex bands around 1413 cm−1 in DMS were attributed to CH3 deformation vibrations and that at 1466 cm−1 in DMPS to phenyl groups. In DMPS a distinct peak at 1593 cm−1 was attributed to a Si–phenyl vibration. In the region 3700–2500 cm−1 absorptions at 2964, 2931, and 2907 cm−1 in DMS were ascribed to C–H-stretching vibrations of dimethylsilyl groups, while a strong peak at 2919 cm−1 in the DMPS spectrum was attributed to a Si–C6H5 mode.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
