General description

Aluminosilicate, mesostructured (Al-MSU) is an analog of hexagonal MCM-41 that can be assembled by zeolite seeds. It is hydrothermally stable and strongly acidic, which makes it useful in catalysis and adsorption technology.

Application

Al-MSU can be used as an adsorbent in the formation of hybrid membranes for fuel cell applications. It can also be used as a catalyst for biomass pyrolysis and production of aromatic amine antioxidants.

Mesoporous Materials include a range of high surface area porous silicates with applications in gas adsorption, drug delivery, diagnostics and catalysis.

Mesoporous materials are formed by a self-assembly process from combined solutions of sol-gel precursors (e.g., metal alkoxides) and structure-directing amphiphiles, usually block-copolymers or surfactants.

Silica is a very popular inorganic nanomaterial used in a wide range of applications including fillers for rubber, catalyst supports, separation media, carriers in food and agriculture, and abrasive/anticaking agents in cosmetics. It is also widely believed to be an important material for biomedical applications for following reasons.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
