Abstract

Directed by the temperature-induced phase transformation in the alkane (from heptane to dodecane)-P123-water-TEOS quadru-component system, i.e., from a swollen inverse hexagonal phase (H(2)) to a swollen lamellar phase (L(alpha)) and then to a swollen normal micelles phase (L(1)), complex silica materials, such as mesoporous nanofibres, multilamellar vesicles (MLVs) and mesocellular foams (MCFs), are constructed.
