Article Preview

Monodispersed mesoporous silicon dioxide microspheres were prepared by polymerization-induced colloid aggregation (PICA) method and calcined at 850oC. The prepared samples were characterized with scanning electron microscopy (SEM), thermogravimetry (TG) and BET surface areas. The results showed that the obtained SiO2 microspheres had an average diameter of about 2.0 µm, a surface area of 253.3 m2g-1, an average pore volume of 0.62 mLg-1, and an average pore diameter of 7.9 nm. The formation mechanism of SiO2 spherical particles was discussed.
