Abstract

original image

Like a silkworm cocoon: Siliceous nanostructures that resemble silkworm cocoons with inner multishells and outer well-oriented nanochannels have been synthesized by simultaneous compromised vesicle templating and liquid-crystal templating methods (see picture). CTA+=cetyltrimethylammonium; PFO=perfluorooctanoate.
