Abstract

(Figure Presented) Woven into place: By precisely controlling the neutralization degree of the anionic surfactant template, mesoporous silica with different structures was prepared, such as AMS-10. Detailed characterizations of AMS-10 show that it is a novel bicontinuous cubic Pn3m mesophase. The mesostructure is composed of an interwoven enantiomeric pair of 3D networks (see picture).
