Synthesis and Characterization of Stable Mesoporous Multilamellar Silica Vesicles
A family of mesoporous multilamellar silica vesicles has been successfully synthesized by using P123 as structure directing agent and hexane as co-surfactant. The structure was characterized with XRD, TEM, and N2 adsorption-desorption isotherms. This multilamellar silica vesicle materials process high specific area, large pore volume, and a bimodale pore size distribution. Furthermore, these materials are stable when the surfactant is removed at 530 oC.
