Objective: Long-term stable and highly versatile and technologically important sol-gel derived
material’s synthesis, characterization and some of its potential applications are presented.
Methods: Multifunctional sol-gel precursor is added with 3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)benzylamine derived peptide
self assembled nanotubes (BTTPNTs), to form a core-shell, BTTPNTs@SiO2 matrix. The prepared material
is characterized by UV-vis absorbance (UV-vis), Diffuse Reflectance Spectra (DRS), X-Ray Diffraction
(XRD), Field Emission-Scanning Electron Microscopy (FE-SEM), Confocal Raman Spectral and Imaging
(CRS & CRM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Transmittance Electron Microscopy (TEM).
Result: The obtained results clearly revealed the expected BTTPNTs implanted core and SiO2 as shell in the
Conclusion: Cyclic Voltammetry (CV) studies explore the sensing activity and UV-vis spectroscopy presents
the smart UV protective ability of the coated glass systems.
