Abstract

A novel ordered siloxane-organic hybrid material has been prepared by hydrolysis and polycondensation of a well-defined alkoxysilane precursor consisting of a tetrasiloxane unit and a 4-phenylbutyl group (1). Evaporation-induced self-assembly during hydrolysis and polycondensation of 1 led to the formation of a two-dimensional (2D) hexagonal mesostructure, which was revealed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Solid-state 13C CP/MAS NMR and 29Si MAS NMR confirmed that the product consisted of 4-phenylbutyl groups and siloxane networks, both of which are linked via Si-C bonds. These results will allow us to produce functional hybrid materials by chemical modification of phenyl groups, and also by incorporating other organic groups. Furthermore, calcination of this hybrid to remove organic groups led to the creation of an ordered microporous silica with the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area of 570 m2 g-1 and the average pore diameter of 1.2 nm.
