The EOmMAn diblock copolymers with various unit number of MA segment can be synthesized via a typical ATRP method and used as the templates for preparation of mesoporous silicas with well-ordered hexagonal mesostructures. With the feasible adjustment of hydrophobic MA parts, the pore size of mesoporous silicas can be tuned in a wide range from 4.0 to 20.0 nm.
