The photosynthetic molecule chlorophyll(Chl) doping silica mesostructure material can be directly synthesized by self-organized co-assemhly of mixing Chl with hexadecyltrimethylammonium chloride (C16-TMA) surfactant, successfully. X-ray diffraction pattern (XRD) shows a typical hexagonal diffraction pattern of the mesoporous materials with d100 about 35.3 Å. The optical absorption spectra show the typical band (located at about 680 nm) of Chl.
