Amine-functionalized SBA-15 materials were synthesized by a post synthesis method. Surface area and pore size decreased by attaching functional groups to the pore surface. Furthermore, pore volume was reduced with functionalization. The carbon and nitrogen content gradually increased with the number of amine groups in the silane precursors. Among the amine-functionalized SBA-15 materials, the SBA-15/TMSPDETA showed the highest removal activity given its high reactivity with formaldehyde.
