Abstract

Electrically driven liquid jets are combined with sol-gel methods to design vesicles and fibers made from inorganic oxides and hybrid materials with diameters in the micrometer and submicrometer range. The proposed materials synthesis method benefits greatly from the maturity of sol-gel chemistry and the generalities of a structure-directing phenomenon that is physical in nature.
