Non-agglomerated hybrid particles of 200 nm diameter with an outer metal oxide shell were prepared by reacting the COOH groups of poly((S)-N-dicarbazolyl-lysine)-covered silica particles with metal alkoxides, such as titanium, zirconium and aluminum alkoxides, followed by sol-gel processing. With tetraethoxysilane (Si(OEt)4), the silica particle core was growing rather than forming an external metal oxide shell, as observed for the other tested metal alkoxides.
