BiOCl nanoparticles synthesized in lyotropic liquid crystal nanoreactors

T. M. Dellinger, P. V. Braun

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Synthesis of inorganic materials in the confined nanoreactors formed by self-organized lyotropic liquid crystals was shown to direct the formation of BiOCl nanoparticles, yielding morphologies previously not obtainable. Liquid crystal based synthetic methodologies are very flexible, and can be generalized for a wide range of inorganic materials, offering opportunities to create a diversity of structures.
