Mesoporous Materials         

Julia Hoets -         


Mesoporous materials are those with pores in the range 20-500 in diameter. They have huge surface areas, providing a vast number of sites where sorption processes can occur. These materials have numerous applications in catalysis, separation and many other fields. The synthesis of these materials is of considerable interest and is constantly being developed to introduce different properties.

This website will describe the different methods of synthesis of these materials:                                                                  

Different properties can be introduced by altering the components of the reaction and the conditions:
