Preparation of Core-Shell Silica Microspheres with Controllable Shell Thickness for Fast High Performance Liquid Chromatography Separation of Alkyl Benzenes and Intact Proteins.

J Biomed Nanotechnol 2021 Mar;17(3):439-446

As it is difficult to prevent secondary nucleation and agglomeration during the preparation of core-shell silica microspheres, these issues have been successfully resolved in this study using template-dissolution-induced redeposition. The non-porous particles are transformed into core-shell silica microspheres (CSSMs) in the presence of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide and octyltrimethylammonium bromide under basic conditions. The shell thickness and pore sizes of the CSSMs are controlled by adjusting the etching time and molar ratio of the template, respectively. Read More
