Conventional sol-gels are rather hydrophilic. A more hydrophobic material is obtained preparing organically modified siloxanes (ormosils). The polarity-sensitive probe Nile Red (NR) was doped in various sol-gels to probe their micro-polarity. The experiments show that the NR is an excellent probe and sensitive to the polarity of its microenvironment. Spectroscopic studies reveal remarkable ...
