Abstract

An aqueous mixture of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and 2,3-dihydroxynaphthalene (2,3-DHN) gives a viscous solution of rodlike nanoaggregates as confirmed by transmission electron microscopy. These supramolecular assemblies are first used as templates for the sol-gel synthesis, providing an aqueous route for tube silicates.
