A simple procedure was developed for preparing wide pore (≦ 40nm) silicas from a common chromatographic silica gel. The effects of various experimental conditions on pore size, pore volume, and surface area are discussed. The results show that under controlled conditions a wide variety of wide pore silica packing materials can be prepared.
