Supramolecular Origami: Transforming Paper into Twisted Structures

第8回 CIMoSセミナー<br>Supramolecular Origami: Transforming Paper into Twisted Structures

 Mesoporous materials with 2-50 nm diameter pores are being investigated for many potential applications including drug delivery, environmental remediation, gas storage, and catalysis. Liquid crystal templating offers a convenient method to control the pore size and organization in these materials, such as in MCM-41 and SBA-15. In 2010, we reported a new type of mesoporous material that has a chiral nematic organization of channels. Using cellulose nanocrystals as a template, mesoporous glasses with chiral nematic order can be prepared. By tuning the synthetic conditions and their compositions, we have obtained a family of new materials with interesting porosity and photonic properties.[1-4] In this presentation, I will describe our efforts to produce new materials that mimic the structures of iridescent beetle shells.
