Micro and Mesoporous Materials for Emerging Applications

Author(s): Cyrus Zamani, Soroush Nazarpour, Sara Abdollahzadeh-Ghom, Albert Cirera.


Mesoporous structures are said to be the most important discovery in the field of materials science in 90s. Thanks to their extremely large specific surface area and interconnected channels, these materials show excellent surfacerelated properties well suited for many applications such as catalytic reactions, separation, and recently, gas sensing. As a relatively new field in materials science, mesostructured materials show promising properties in gas sensing applications bringing the advantage of fast response and recovery as well as high degree of stability as compared to commercially available micro-scale materials. This article is a short review of patents on mesoporous materials and their applications in gas sensing technology and integrated chromatography systems.

Keywords: Mesoporous silica, zeolite, KIT-6, SBA-15, MCM-41, catalytic properties, chemical sensing, gas chromatography
