We report the synthesis of oriented silica meso-structure films by surfactants such as hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (C16TMA) or 11-ferrocenylundecyl-ammonium bromide (Fe-TMA) surfactant on a sol-gel method by spin coating. X-ray diffraction of the film showed that the film oriented in a lamellar, hexagonal or cubic structure, just depending on C16TMA's concentration. In the case of lamellar oriented film by Fe-TMA, linear temperature dependent conductivity properties were observed.
