The TEM image on the right shows cubic mesopores in the silica walls that surround macropores. 1. Infiltration ofCCTwith Sol-Gel Precursors According to an early report of combined colloidal crystal/surfactant templating, the addition of a cationic surfactant to the silicate sol-gel precursor produced macroporous silica with uniform mesopores within the walls . Addition of the surfactant template increased the surface area of the silica inverse opal from 200 m2 g"1 (without template) to 1300 m2 g"1 (with template) in the calcined products.
At sizes of ca. 1-2 nm, pre-synthesized tungstosilicate polyoxometalate clusters are included in the organosiloxane precursors that are used to prepare silica inverse opals [245-247]. The clusters are homogeneously dispersed throughout the ordered macroporous architecture after latex sphere solvent extraction, but bulk tungsten oxide domains are formed upon calcination. Inverse opal carbon monoliths have been further functionalized with Ti0 2 nanoparticles via the stepwise layer-by-layer (LBL) deposition and hydrothermal treatment of a ligand-stabilized titanium salt onto poly electrolyte-coated pore walls .
Synthesis of Hydrogels The dynamic tuning of 3DOM pore sizes in response to external stimuli, such as pH or temperature, has been studied for potential chromatographic and drug release applications. There is precedent in the literature for using inverse opal solids for timed drug release in response to body pH, temperature, or chemical conditions [229,230]. Furthermore, chemical and biological sensing capabilities have been demonstrated by hydrogel-infiltrated CCT films that are co-assembled from cross-linked polar monomers and latex colloids, followed by subsequent photopolymerization [231-234].
