Abstract

We report the shapeable synthesis of porous silica frameworks using polyacrylamide (PAAm) gel as an organic template and hydrolyzed silicon alkoxide as a silica source. Macroscopically shaped porous frameworks - such as plates, tablets and sheets - comprised of 20- to 40-nm diameter silica particles are obtained via PAAm-silica precursor gels. The mechanical properties (i.e., hardness and Young's modulus) of the silica frameworks depend on the packing density and are controlled by changing the silica content in PAAm gels.
