Gyroidal cubic Ia3d silica monoliths (see Figure) with controlled pores of 8–10 nm diameter, thick-walled framework up to 17 nm, and highly uniform mesoporosity have been fabricated using a simple strategy. Such structural features are likely to expand the industrial applications of these monoliths.
