Monodisperse mesoporous silica microspheres formed by evaporation-induced self assembly of surfactant templates in aerosols

Monodisperse spherical porous silica particles with diameters in the 5 to 10 μm range were synthesized by evaporation-induced self assembly of surfactant templates in aerosols. Microdroplets of aerosols were produced by a vibrating orifice aerosol generator (VOAG). Results indicated that pore size, mesoscopic ordering, and monodisperse particle size could be controlled by the experimental conditions, precursor chemistry, and VOAG parameters.
