Evidence of drug confinement into silica mesoporous matrices by STEM spherical aberration corrected microscopy

Author affiliations

Abstract

For the first time it has been possible to detect drug molecules confined into the inner part of pore channels of ordered mesoporous materials. This has been possible using spherical aberration correctors incorporated to a STEM microscope, which allows illuminating an individual atom with the electron beam to identify an unknown substance.
