Abstract

Tunable mesostructures and ultrafine particle sizes were achieved by means of triblock-copolymer and fluorocarbon surfactants, respectively, in the hydrothermal synthesis of mesoporous silica nanoparticles. The TEM image shows one such nanoparticle with a diameter of approximately 300 nm.
