Silica is currently one of the most important industrial materials, whose nanoparticles are formed via a sol-gel process. They are non-toxic and commercially valuable, for they are used widely in sensors, scintillation detectors, and household products. Future uses may involve metabolic sensors and drug-delivery vehicles. Measuring the size of silica nanoparticles and pores is still difficult and unreliable, despite the multibillion-dollar production of silica worldwide.
