MCM-41 Nanoparticles were successfully coated on the surface of polystyrene (PS) microspheres via electrostatic layer-by-layer assembly by using two polyelectrolytes, i.e., sodium poly(4-styrenesulfonate) (PSS) and poly(diallyldimethylammonium) (PDDA). The experimental results showed that when monodisperse PS microspheres of ca. 1.4 μm in diameter were used as core, composite microparticles coated with two prime polyelectrolyte bilayers (PDDA/PSS)2, i.e., PS(PDDA/PSS)2(PDDA/MCM-41), aggregated to a less extent than those coated with a single prime polyelectrolyte bilayer (PDDA/PSS), i.e., PS(PDDA/PSS)(PDDA/MCM-41). However, the covering of MCM-41 nanoparticles was incompact on the surface of PS microspheres in both cases, and there were many impurities in the final products. When monodisperse PS microspheres of 5 μm in diameter were used as core, MCM-41 nanoparticles were densely coated on the surface of PS microspheres.
