Mesoporous materials are a class of molecules with a large and uniform pore size, highly regular nanopores, and a large surface area. This book is devoted to all aspects and types of these materials and describes, in an in-depth and systematic manner, the step-by-step synthesis and its mechanism, as well as the characterization, morphology control, hybridization, and applications, of mesoporous molecular sieves. In so doing, it covers silicates, metal-doped silicates, nonsilicates, and organic-inorganic hybrids. Although the emphasis is on synthesis, the expert authors also discuss characterization and applications, ranging from catalysis and biochemistry to optics and the use of these materials as templates for nanomaterial synthesis. Both the fundamentals and the latest research results are covered, ensuring that this monograph serves as a reference for researchers in and newcomers to the field. von Zhao, Dongyuan

Dongyuan Zhao obtained his B.S. and M.S. in chemistry from Jilin University, China. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1990 (Jilin University and the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics). Between 1992 and 1993, he was a visiting scholar at the Department of Chemistry, University of Regina, and later carried out his postdoctoral research at the Weizmann Institute of Science (1993 - 1994), the University of Houston (1995 - 1996), and the University of California at Santa Barbara (1996 - 1998). He is now a Professor (Cheung Kong Professorship) in the Department of Chemistry at Fudan University. He was elected an Academician of the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) in 2007, and as a member of the Third World Academy of Science (TWAS) in 2010. His current research interests include synthesis, structural characterization, and applications of ordered porous materials, such as mesoporous materials, zeolites, and coordination polymers. He has contributed to approximately 500 international scientific publications. Ying Wan obtained her academic degrees in Industrial Catalysis at the East China University of Science and Technology, receiving her Ph.D. in 2002 under the supervision of Professor Jianxin Ma. She then joined the Shanghai Normal University, where she was awarded a position as a Professor in 2006. In 2005 - 2007, she carried out her postdoctoral research at Fudan University working with Professor Dongyuan Zhao.

Wuzong Zhou, obtained his BSc in 1982 (Fudan University, Shanghai) and his PhD in 1988 (University of Cambridge) under the supervision of Professor Sir John M. Thomas and Dr. David A. Jefferson. He then pursued his research in Cambridge for 11 years as a Research Assistant, Research Associate, Research Fellow of Queens - College (1987 - 1990), and Assistant Director of Research (1993 - 1998). In 1999, he moved to St. Andrews University to set up a new Electron Microscopy Laboratory. He currently holds a Professorship of Chemistry there. His research interests are in solid-state chemistry in general and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy in particular. He has published more than 290 international scientific papers, including over 10 HRTEM-related review articles/-book chapters.
