Controllable Synthesis of Mesoporous Multipods for Enhanced Nano-bio Interactions

  • Jianlin ShiEmail author


Precise manipulation of surface topology has been being a great challenge for the fabrication of functional nanomaterials. Very recently Zhao and coworkers developed a surface-kinetic mediated multi-site nucleation strategy to precisely control the nucleation number of periodic mesoporous organosilicas(PMOs) on the surface of magnetic nano-spheres. The as-prepared mesoporous multipods(especially the Tribulus-like tetra-pods mesoporous nanoparticles) present high bacteria adhesion efficiency through multivalent interactions, which are expected to be the promising can-didates for future antibacterial applications. This work has been published online in the Nature Communications in Sep-tember 26, 2019.
