Hierarchical Structures: Hierachically Structured Hollow Silica Spheres for High Efficiency Immobilization of Enzymes (Adv. Funct. Mater. 17/2013)
The Linglong ball, a Chinese handicraft, has a hierarchically structured hollow architecture. On page 2162 Shunsheng Cao, Yi Ge, Anthony P. F. Turner, and co-workers report a high-efficiency enzyme-immobilization formulation based on the synthesized hierarchically structured hollow silica host. This shows significant advantages over existing pure hollow silica matrices, thus facilitating further multifarious applications for enhanced enzyme immobilization, biosensing, and bio-catalysis.
