dc.description.abstractThe purpose was to have nanosized particles with low energy perimeters which function as non-reacting transporters for targeted delivery along with high energy sites inside the pores to achieve controlled release of specialized chemicals. Surfactants were used in combination with both base and acid catalyzed methods to achive desired structural properties and the characterization studies such as SEM, TEM, FTIR, BET surface area, pore size, size and zeta potential measurements were conducted. The effect of surfactants on mesoporous silica production changed depending on the type of methods. In the case of base catalysed method in alcohol, formation of stabilized emulsions with different sizes and their effect on the size and shape of silica particles was proposed. The effect of surfactants was attributed to their effect on a) the emulsification process and b) silica-silica and silica-surfactant interactions involved. In the case of base catalysed silica production in water, however, surfactant micelles were used as templates to produce pores. The effect of surfactant type and concentration was attributed to their effect on the CMC, micelle shape and size. Rod-like (~400 nm) at high and spherical (~200 nm) particles at low concentrations were synthesized. Here the surface area of ~1000 m2/g and average pore size of ~3 nm were obtained. Carbonization of these materials were performed to obtain nanosized silica particles with low energy perimeters successfully. Acid catalysed silica production in water was similar. Rod-like (600-800 nm) and cubic (800-1000 nm) nanoparticles were produced. These particles exhibited lower surface area of ~700 m2/g and larger pore size of ~5 nm.en
