This could be Silica reached due to the replacement of the basic catalyst ammonia by ethanolamine. Thus, high temperature Reaction tube synthesis up to 80 °C can be run without facing the risk of bubble formation inside the reaction tube. The Stöber process modiﬁed synthesis route enables the synthesis of spherical silica nanoparticles with mean diameters between 28 and 647 nm and standard deviations less than 10% as well as smooth surface structures. This work deals with basic studies on the use of ethanolamine for the synthesis of silica nanoparticles in alkaline media in sealed reaction tubes
