Abstract

original image

Control via exchange: By using a new type of imidazolium-based gemini surfactant as the template, highly ordered cubic mesoporous silica material (MCM-48) was directly synthesized in a broad range of reactant compositions and under mild conditions (see scheme). Moreover, by a simple counterion exchange strategy, hexagonal (MCM-41) and lamellar (MCM-50) mesoporous silicas are also easily and efficiently accessible.
