This paper has been devoted to the preparation of hard colloidal crystals by a self-assembly process. The aim of the study has been to find the precise conditions governing this process, in order to make it controllable. To accomplish our goal, we have studied the influence of factors such as: the type of solvent, system temperature, particle volume fraction and size of the silica spheres. These are synthesized following a Stober procedure where the size is precisely controlled by a seeded… CONTINUE READING
