Swelling of a mesostructured zirconium oxide film

Henderson, Mark; Rennie, Adrian R; Hawley, A; White, John


The structural changes that cause the change in interlayer spacing of a surfactant-templated zirconium oxide film have been studied using neutron diffractometry. We report that the film after drying on a glass substrate swells slightly through the addition of benzene by up to 4 Å on a lattice parameter of about 36 Å. The (0 0 1) and (0 0 2) diffraction peak widths, positions and areas of a swollen film were monitored as a function of benzene desorption. Disorder of the lamellar mesophase is...[Show more]
