Box 653, 84105 Beer-Sheva, Israel highlights graphical a bstract Surfactant catalysis allows AIBN- CTAB Solution + Fumed Silica initiated free radical polymerization Porous at 40 C. Surfactant partially covers silica surfaces, remainder in surfactant– polymer mixture. 40 °C Silica particle mainly covered with poly(methyl methacrylate). + AIBN Fumed silica acts as an inhibitor for 4 H free radical polymerization. MMA Porous composites were produced in the presence of fumed silica.
