Abstract: Nanoparticles of CeO2, Fe3O4, TiO2 and ZnO get coated by hexadecyltriethoxysilane on refluxing the nanoparticles and the organosilane in a hydrocarbon solvent. The organosilane-coated metal oxide nanoparticles give stable dispersions in hydrocarbon solvents due to their hydrophobic surface. On heating in air, the organosilane-coated metal oxide nanoparticles yield to silica-coated core-shell type nanoparticles.
