Abstract Periodic mesoporous organosilicas (PMOs) with controlled structures have been synthesized by using cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and sodium perfluorooctanoate (PFONa) as cotemplates, 1,2-bis (triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTEE) as an organosilica precursor. By increasing the weight ratio of PFONa/CTAB, a structure transformation from a cubic (Pm-3n) to a two-dimensional hexagonal (p6m) mesostructure and then to multilamellar vesicles can be observed. The cubic and hexagonal samples have similar particle size (200-750 nm), pore size (2.6 and 2.8 nm, respectively), total pore volume (̃0.7 cm 3/g), and surface area (̃900 m 2/g), providing ideal candidates to study the peptide enrichment performance influenced simply by pore symmetries. Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectroscopy (MALDI-TOF MS) analysis indicates that PMO with a cubic (Pm-3n) structure is more effective in small molecular weight peptides enrichment compared with PMO with a hexagonal structure, showing the importance of mesostructural control for targeted applications. The phenomena can be attributed to the cage-type structure of the Pm-3n symmetry, which possesses cages with a relatively larger pore size and connectivity with a relatively smaller size. It is suggested that the pore entrances with small size are responsible for entrapping small molecular weight peptides. Our study may shed light on the designed synthesis of functional porous materials with controlled structures and enhanced performance in peptides enrichment. Copyright
