We report an insight into the synthesis of silica-based "matchstick"-shaped colloidal particles, which are of interest in the area of self-propulsion on small length scales. The generation of aqueous emulsion droplets dispersed in an n-pentanol-rich continuous phase and their use as reaction centers allows for the fabrication of siliceous microparticles that exhibit anisotropy in both particle morphology, that is, a "matchstick" shape, and chemistry, that is, a transition-metal oxide-enriched… CONTINUE READING
