A new method for fabricating fibrous mesostructured silica on a glass substrate using rubbing-treated polyimide film is presented. By using this method, both continuous films and fibers with preferred mesochannel orientation can be formed. Self-supported fiber-like silica prepared by this method have smooth surfaces without branching or connecting.
