Abstract

Monolithic silica gel microhoneycombs, which have an array of straight macropores within their structure and developed micro/mesopores inside their walls, were prepared using pseudosteady state growth of ice crystals which occurs during the unidirectional freeze-gelation of freshly gelled aqueous silica hydrogels, followed by a pore-protecting drying method, freeze drying.
