A simple synthesis of homogeneously sized, ordered mesoporous
silica nanorods (SBA-15), spanning about 10 porous channels in
width and ranging from 300 to 600 nm in length is reported.
Periodic mesoporous materials have sparked great research
interest since the discovery of the M41S family,1 and extensive
efforts have been devoted to their morphological control.2
Recently, increasing attent
