SBA-15 is a mesoporous silica sieve based on uniform hexagonal pores with a narrow pore size distribution and a tunable pore diameter of between 5 and 15 nm. SBA-15 is synthesized in a cooperative self-assembly process under acidic conditions using the triblock copolymer Pluronic 123 (EO20PO70EO20) as template and tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) as the silica source. Different from SBA-3 and MCM-41, the 2D channels in SBA-15 are connected with each other. It can be used in environmental analytics for adsorption and separation, advanced optics, as a support material for catalysts and as a template for the production of nanostructured carbon or platinum replica.
