Abstract

Mesoporous molecular sieve MCM-41 and its Ti-modified derivative have been synthesised in a mild alkali condition using cetylpyridinium bromide as template. The (001) surface of the MCM-41 particles shows a paintbrush-like morphology formed by bundles of silica nanotubes. The smallest silica form in the mesoporous phases, single silica nanotubes, was also observed on the surface. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
