Abstract

In this work, we report the elaboration of macroscopic hybrid virus-silica fibers. By using a silicate sol as inorganic precursor combined with the filamentous fd virus, well-dispersed hybrid fibers are obtained in solution. These macroscopic fd-silica fibers exhibit a narrow distribution of their diameter, while their length is at the millimeter scale. A scenario of the morphosynthesis is proposed to account for the formation of these high aspect ratio hybrid fibers.
