Synthesis of hollow silica nanospheres by sacrificial polystyrene templates for thermal insulation applications

In this paper, researchers synthesized monodispersed polystyrene spheres (PS), of a desired size. Generally, PS have a typical diameter ranging from 180 nm to 900 nm. However, the researchers in this study were able to reduce the sphere size, by increasing the polyvinylpyrolidone/styrene weight ratio. The PS were used as models, in order to fabricate hollow silica nanospheres (HSNSs), for thermal insulation applications. With modifications to this silica coating process, HSNSs ...
