Abstract

A novel rigid-core surfactant where three trimethylammonium heads are attached to a benzene core via flexible hydrocarbon chains was examined as a template for synthesizing ordered porous silica. A well-ordered 2D hexagonal silica structure with relatively small pores was generated owing to the formation of the stable mesophase where the surfactants were stacked to form cylindrical assemblies.
