Abstract

We present a direct soft templating method to synthesise mesoporous tin dioxide network that maintains a porous structure after calcination at 400 °C and 500 °C and has a relatively high BET surface area of 220 and 100 m2 g-1, respectively. TEM, BET and XRD results confirm that both crystal and pore sizes increase as a result of increasing the temperatures during the calcination step. This method is highly reproducible.
