ACS Nano. 2013 Feb 26;7(2):1036-44. doi: 10.1021/nn303570s. Epub 2013 Jan 23.We report a facile "one-pot" method for the synthesis of Sn-embedded carbon-silica (CS) mesostructured (nanostructured) composites through the selective interaction of resol (carbon precursor), tetraethylorthosilicate (TEOS), and tributylphenyltin (Sn precursor) with an amphiphilic diblock copolymer, poly(ethylene oxide-b-styrene), PEO-b-PS. A unique morphology transition from Sn nanowires to spherical Sn nanoparticles embedded in CS framework has been obtained. Read More
