Title: Finite-sized one-dimensional silica microstructures (rods): Synthesis, assembly, and applications

Abstract

Colloidal silica structures are highly important for applications ranging from surface modifications such as superhydrophobic, oleophobic, icephobic, and anti-biofouling coatings, as reinforcements in polymer-ceramic or metal-matrix composites, and phonon management. In addition to various types of silica structures, a unique structure silica rods has been synthesized by employing the emulsion droplets made by dissolving polyvinlypyrrolidone in pentanol. While a significant progress has been made in further modifying their shape and chemistry, in their assembly, and in their applications, however, no review article compiled the progress in this field. Furthermore, this minireview intends to highlight the development in the synthesis, assembly, and application of these rods, and discuss the remaining challenges for precise control of size and shape, possible solutions, and potential applications.
