25_22b/2013Nanoparticles: Colloidal HPMO Nanoparticles: Silica-Etching Chemistry Tailoring, Topological Transformation, and Nano-Biomedical Applications (Adv. Mater. 22/2013)

Colloidal hollow periodic mesoporous organosilica nanoparticles (HPMOs) with tunable compositions and highly hybridized nanostructures are successfully synthesized by Jianlin Shi, Yaping Li, Hangrong Chen, and co-workers via a simple, easy to scale up, but versatile silicaetching chemistry for applications in nanofabrication and nanomedicine. The cover shows the special hybrid framework of HPMOs and the etching process.
