Abstract

Colloidal mesoporous silica nanoparticles asymmetrically capped with non-porous phenylsilsesquioxane have been prepared by adding phenyltriethoxysilane to an aqueous dispersion of mesostructured silica-surfactant composite nanoparticles. The integration of colloidal stability, mesoporosity and the Janus structure is quite promising for materials design applicable in various fields, including catalysis, biomedicine and coatings.
