This contribution outlines four different ROMP-based (ROMP = ring-opening metathesis polymerization) approaches to prepare polymer overlayers possessing either hydroxyl or carboxylic acid functionalities on oxidized silicon surface or silica (SiO2) nanoparticles. The morphology, elemental composition, and properties of these polymer overlayers can be characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), ellipsometry, and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR).
