Mesoporous Materials: Properties and Applications

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

Mesoporous Materials Synthesis

Mespoporous materials, also known as mesoporous molecular sieves, are a class of 3D-nanostructures with well-defined mesoscale (2–50 nm diameter) pores and surface areas up to 1000 m2/g

Recent Developments in Silicon Anode Materials for High Performance Lithium-Ion Batteries

Recent demand for electric and hybrid vehicles, coupled with a reduction in prices, has caused lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) to become an increasingly popular form of rechargeable battery technology.

Bio-Inspired “Green” Synthesis of Nanomaterials and their Applications

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.
