Various kinds of organic dye molecules were successfully incorporated into silica-surfactant nanoparticles with a hexagonally ordered mesostructure. The dye-incorporated composite particles, which had a diameter of ca. 30 nm, exhibited specific fluorescent properties and pH sensitivity derived from the organic molecules.
