Single-strand spider silk templating for the formation of hierarchically ordered hollow mesoporous silica fibers

Author affiliations

Abstract

A single strand of spider silk with a diameter of ∼5 µm and ∼3 cm in length was used as a template to dip-coat a liquid crystalline silicasurfactant mesophase along the direction of the silk strand to obtain a hierarchically ordered hollow mesoporous silica fiber (external diameter of 1–2 µm) after removal of the spider silk template and the surfactant by calcination.
