Silica aerogels are unique nanoporous materials that can be used in a variety of applications. Silica aerogels are attractive for window applications as they are monolithic, thermally insulating, and extremely lightweight. They also can be made transparent or translucent. Aerogels can be made using a variety of methods; in this work, a rapid supercritical extraction method (RSCE) is employed. Although typically translucent, silica aerogels can have dyes incorporated within them to create aerogels of a variety of colors. We are investigating the usage of dyed monolithic silica aerogels in window applications to improve aesthetic effects. However, the high temperatures and pressures required for the RSCE process can lead to dye degradation. In this presentation, we demonstrate how to incorporate Rhodamine 6B, Rhodamine B, and Fluorescein into monolithic silica aerogels. Rhodamine B experiences thermal degradation during monolithic aerogel synthesis. Adjusting processing parameters, including temperature and pressure, can minimize thermal degradation while ensuring the structural integrity of the aerogel. Ultraviolet radiation can also lead to dye degradation, which would be problematic for aerogels in a window application. Future work will focus on spectroscopic characterization of the dyed aerogel monoliths.
