Fibrous nanosilica: A new family of high-surface-area silica
nanospheres (KCC-1) have been prepared (see picture). KCC-1 features
excellent physical properties, including high surface area,
unprecedented fibrous surface morphology, high thermal (up to 950 °C)
and hydrothermal stabilities, and high mechanical stability.
