Abstract We report how we could circumvent two major drawbacks in the potential scale up synthesis of mesoporous silica via the surfactant-based templating route. First, burning the organic templates to free porosity is costly and not environmental friendly. Most of the mesoporous silica materials show also extremely poor resistance to hydrothermal environments. These drawbacks have certainly contributed to prevent these materials meet practical use, and hampered any possible large-scale manufac...

Abstract The formation of silicate/organic hybrid micelles is an important milestone in the two-step synthesis of mesoporous silica with polyethyleneoxide (PEO) nonionic structure directing agents (C.R. Chimie 8 (2005) 579). Unlike many inorganic/organic hybrid micelles, these objects have the inorganic component as a diffuse layer positioned at the periphery of the initial micelles and interacting with the hydrophilic polyoxyethylene palisade. We studied how this additional inorganic layer can ...

Abstract Membranes are vital and touch every aspect of our daily lives. For instance, they ensure that clean or pure drinking water can be produced, or they can purify our air. However, there is no one-membrane material that can perform all these objectives, and they must be catered for each specific application. As more traditional membrane materials are either polymer based or inorganic/ceramic based, each application will require a different material that can use one or both of these componen...

Abstract Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) are still attracting great attention as a potential alternative to conventional silicon solar cells, and a lot of current research is focusing on enhancing their efficiency through the individual improvement of the DSSCs components, as well as their integration. Among all components, mesoporous TiO 2 plays a major role, because it is the charge collector for the dye molecules or perovskite in liquid and solid DSSCs, respectively. Specificities of TiO 2...

Ring-opening metathesis polymerization, or ROMP, has been known in the world of polymers as a success story. With its discovery in the middle of the 20th century, the study and understanding of this reaction led to its adoption in a multitude of areas in both academic and industrial domains. However, with the general shift towards hybrid materials and better material integration, surface-initiated polymerization (SIP) has been an area of great interest that ROMP has only tapped into at the very ...

ABSTRACTWe report how the control of a single parameter, the co-surfactant, determines the phase transitions of oil-in-water swollen liquid crystals (SLCs) prepared with cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), from cubic to hexagonal, lamellar, and finally sponge-like structures. SLCs are complex mixtures (surfactant + co-surfactant + water + salt + oil) usually prepared to form hexagonal mesophases, with cell parameters tunable between 3 and 30 nm. These hexagonal mesophases were successfully us...

We describe the generation and properties of TiO2-based macroscopic fibers designed for the photodecomposition of volatile organic compounds (VOC). We made use of a continuous industrially scalable extrusion process employing hybrid sols of amorphous titania nanoparticles, polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), and optionally latex nanoparticles. This process allowed for the continuous generation of hybrid TiO2/latex/PVA or TiO2/PVA macroscopic fibers. Upon thermal treatment in air, we obtained biphasic porou...
