Organic–inorganic hybrid aerogels with high mechanical properties via organotrialkoxysilane-derived sol–gel process


A brief overview of siloxane-based low-density aerogels and aerogels-like xerogels is presented. Aerogels are highly porous solids composed of inorganic oxides, metals, cross-linked polymers and carbons, and are known to possess a number of excellent physical properties such as high visible-light transparency with low refractive index, low dielectric… (More)
