Electroinduced Surfactant Self-Assembly Driven to Vertical Growth of Oriented Mesoporous Films

Abstract : Supramolecular soft-templating approaches to mesoporous materials have revolutionized the generation of regular nanoarchitectures exhibiting unique features such as uniform pore structure with tuneable dimensions, large surface area and high pore volume, variability of composition and/or ease of functionalization with a wide range of organo-functional groups, or good hosts for the in situ synthesis of nanoobjects. One appealing concept in this field is the development of ordered mesoporous thin films as such a configuration has proven to be essential for various applications including separation, sensing, catalysis (electro and photo), energy conversion and storage, photonics, solar cells, photo-and electrochromism, low-k dielectric coatings for microelectronics, bio and nanobio devices or biomimetic surfaces. Supported or free-standing mesoporous films are mostly prepared by evaporation induced self-assembly methods, thanks to their good processing capability and flexibility to manufacture mesostructured oxides and organicinorganic hybrids films with periodically organized porosity.
