    Abstract
    Periodic mesoporous organosilica are well known as highly potential materials in biomedical applications. In this work, biodegradable PMO nanoparticles, named E4S, which was incorporated of redox-responsive tetrasulfide bonds, were successfully synthesized with particle size smaller than 50 nm. We study the effect of synthetic conditions, especially the amounts of an alkaline catalyst on particle size and porosity of the nanomaterial. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, scanning electron microscope, N 2 isotherm sorption, Fourier transform infrared and thermogravimetric analysis...
