Porous materials featuring high surface areas, narrow pore size distribution and tuneable pore diameters have attracted a great deal of attention due to their relevant properties and applications in various areas including adsorption, separation, sensing and catalysis. With the development of a wide range of these materials with varying morphologies (e.g., hexagonal, cubic, rod-like), structures (e.g., silicates, carbons, metal oxides) and functionalities, this field is currently one of the most advanced in materials science.
This section “Porous Materials” publishes original contributions detailing the synthesis, design, characterisation and applications in different areas of porous materials. Fields covered include all types of porous materials in the broad sense (microporous, mesoporous and macroporous including silicates, metal oxides, zeolites, metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), etc.) and both fully experimental and theoretical aspects of Materials Science related to porous materials.
