    Colloidal mesoporous silica nanoparticles (CMS) are useful as carriers for imaging probes because of their unique features. A simple method for the pore clogging of CMS has been proved by the addition of tetraethoxysilane under weakly basic conditions. The pore clogging of CMS is useful for encapsulation of thermoresponsive dyes.
