silica alumina structures preparation membranes nano carbon removal

Preparation of oriented mesoporous carbon nano-filaments within the pores of anodic alumina membranes. (2006)

Abstract Oriented mesoporous carbon nano-filaments were prepared as replicas of Fe-containing silica mesostructures deposited inside the channels of anodic alumina membranes (AAMs). Due to the confinement imposed by the channels of the AAMs, rather unusual mesophase structures showing "circular" or "columnar" mesoscopic channels were formed that were replicated as pure carbon analogues after removal of the templating hosts. These structures are assembled in the forms of macroscopic membranes and are hierarchically ordered first due to the arrangement of the channels of the AAMs and second due to the mesophase counterparts.
