Surfactant-ruthenium II complexes...
Surfactant-ruthenium II complexes that display lyotropic liquid-crystalline behavior have been prepared. Their utility as templates for the synthesis of mesoporous silicates that contain RuO2
particles in their channels is demonstrated. It is found that by simply altering the surfactant chain length the pore size of the metal-containing silicates can be altered in a controllable manner (V.W.-W. Yam et al., May 17; Adv. Mater. 2002
