Mandal Surface-Confined Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization from Sacrificial Mesoporous Silica Nanospheres for Preparing Mesoporous Polymer/Carbon Nanospheres with Faithful Shape Replication: Functional Mesoporous Materials Advanced Functional Materials 22
The synthesis of mesoporous polymer and carbon nanospheres with complete shape retention is demonstrated. The technique allows fabrication of functional mesoporous nanospheres using functional comonomers such as 4-vinylbenzyl chloride, 1-vinylimidazole, and 4-vinylphenylboronic acid with methyl metharylate. These functionalized mesoporous materials find potential applications in the removal of ionic contaminants, sensing of glucose, and as “clickable” mesoporous materials.
