Abstract

The left- and right-handed helical silica nanostructures were obtained with the aid of organic templates, the formation of the nanostructures might follow a co-operation self-assembly mechanism. The chirality of the organogel self-assemblies was successfully transcribed in to the silica. The helical pitch and pore size silica nanotubes sensitively depended on the optical purity of the neutral gelator in the reaction mixtures.
