This thesis offers reviews at the interplay of sentimental fabrics like surfactants and proteins with difficult silica nanomaterials. because of its interdisciplinary nature it combines techniques from the fields of actual chemistry, nanoscience and fabrics technological know-how, yielding to basic insights into the structure-directing forces working on the nano-scale. it's proven that the morphology of surfactant micellar aggregates adsorbed on the floor of nanoparticles and within tubular nanopores could be tuned on call for through the co-adsorption of a floor modifier. The interplay of globular proteins with silica nanoparticles is ruled via electrostatic interactions and will be managed by way of pH and ionic power, whereas the bridging of nanoparticles via adsorbed protein molecules ends up in large-scale hybrid aggregates of protein with the nanoparticles. recommendations rising from the function of electrostatic interactions within the hetero-aggregation of nanoparticles with protein molecules are used for the co-assembly of charged microbeads into linear clusters and chains of controllable length.
