In the past two decades, the field of nanoporous materials has undergone significant developments. As these materials possess high specific surface areas, well-defined pore sizes, and functional sites, they show a great diversity of applications such as molecular adsorption/storage and separation, sensing, catalysis, energy storage and conversion, drug delivery, and more. Nanoporous Materials: Synthesis and Applications surveys the key developments in the synthesis of nanoporous materials in a broad range from soft porous materials—such as porous organic and metal-organic frameworks—to hard porous materials, such as porous metals and metal oxides, and the significant advances in their applications to date.

Topics Include:

  • Synthetic approaches, characterization techniques, and applications of a variety of meso- and microporous polymers and organic frameworks
  • Advances in the synthetic control of structures along with the function exploration of this new class of organic porous materials
  • Synthesis and applications of nanoporous metal-organic frameworks, mesoporous silica, and nanoporous glass
  • Synthesis of mesoporous carbons by a soft- and hard-templating method and their applications for supercapacitors and membrane separations
  • Fabrication of nanoporous semiconductor materials
  • Structural modification and functional improvement of layered zeolites
  • Germanates and related materials with open-frameworks
