Seeding-growth of helical mesoporous silica nanofibers templated by achiral cationic surfactant.

Abstract

Helical mesoporous silica nanofibers with parallel nanochannels were synthesized in high yield via a novel seeding-growth method by using the achiral cationic surfactant cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) as template without auxiliary additives. A general entropy-driven model taking into account the icelike structure water due to the hydrophobic effect… (More)
