For the first time we studied the growth kinetics of monodispersed spherical silica particles by the dynamic light scattering method in real time. We observed the methodological features of such researches. We received experimental data on the dynamics of change of particle size throughout their formation and growth. The simultaneous presence of at least three sizes of silica particles during their initiation and growth was presented. We believe it indicated a complex, multistage mechanism for the formation of terminal spheres.
Keywords: growth kinetics, monodispersed spherical silica particles, dynamic light scattering, hierarchical aggregation.
