Scholarcy highlights

  • The electrodeposition and nano-silica incorporation were used together to prepare the novel composite dodecyltrimethoxysilane/SiO2 thin films from silane sol–gel system on aluminum substrate
  • The results showed that both the two techniques can improve the films formation and their protectiveness
  • The enhancement in film thickness has been detected by these two techniques from the elemental depth profiles of silane films as measured by secondary-ion mass spectroscopy
  • Current–time curves were on-line recorded on aluminum electrodes in silane solutions
  • As compared with that in blank solution, the current response was found to be larger in silica-contained precursor, probably suggesting that the silica particles participate in the film deposition
