In this paper, we have studied a method of loading 12-tungstophosphoric acid (H3PW12O40; PWA) into blockcopolymer templated (designed EO20PO70EO20; Pluronic P-123) mesoporous SiO2 framework without a disordering of mesostructure and without remarkable decrease of specific surface area through one-step condensation process. A precursor solution is initially prepared by TEOS (tetraethoxysilane) hydrolyzed with templating polymer (eg. triblock copolymer), and then mixed directly with PWA to condense mesoporous silicate products that incorporate PWA clusters in the framework. Heteropolyanions are possibly incorporated in the framework silicates. Electrochemical properties of these PWA impregnated mesoporous silicates were studied as electrode materials of Li ion battery as well as solid proton conductors.
