Abstract

The room-temperature synthesis of mesoporous silica was investigated by using cationic surfactants and inorganic Si sources, like sodium silicate and colloidal silica. Mesoporous silica analogous to the hexagonal MCM-41 could be obtained over a wide range of pH below ca. 11 within short synthesis time (3 h), when the Q4-state Si was absent in the Si source solution prior to mixing with an aqueous solution of cationic surfactants. It was suggested that the strongly acidic conditions (pH < 1) were favorable to give mesoporous silica materials with higher surface area and larger mesopore volume.
