Abstract

Surfactant self-assembly is used to develop templates for materials synthesis. The reverse micelle microstructure of the anionic, AOT, serves as a template for the enzymatic synthesis of polymer microspheres and the encapsulation of nanoparticles within these microspheres. Transformation from reverse micelles to a rigid organohydrogel structure is conducted through the addition of the zwitterionic phospholipid, lecithin. The gel serves as a template for the extended synthesis of silica networks and provides opportunities to synthesize polymer-inorganic structured nanocomposites.
