Summary of "Double-walled hierarchical porous silica nanotubes loaded Au nanoparticles in the interlayer as a high-performance catalyst."

Double-walled hierarchical porous silica nanotubes (NTs) loaded Au nanoparticles (Au NPs) in the interlayer (SiO₂@Au@SiO₂ NTs) are synthesized by using tetraethoxysilane as silica source and hollow polydivinylbenzene (PDVB) nanowires as the sacrificial templates. The mesopores on the walls and the hollow structure of NTs (macropores) construct the hierarchical porous structure. The SiO₂@Au@SiO₂ NTs possess a high surface area of 405 m²·g⁻¹ and an average pores size of 4.7 nm. The double-walled structure protects the Au NPs from environmental attacks, which shows an excellent catalytic activity even after reusing for 10 times. Meanwhile, the hierarchical porous structure shows excellent catalytic ability and allows the catalytic reaction process to be completed within 5 minutes. This result indicates that double-walled silica NTs have vast potential in catalysis application due to the special structure.
