Mesoporous materials were first discovered by Kuroda et al. and researchers of the Mobil Company in the early 1990s by the templating of surfactant micelles or liquid crystalline phases. Intensive interest has been attracted from world-wide researchers in that mesoporous materials extend the pore size of molecular sieves to 2−50 nm, which is significantly larger than that of conventional zeolites thus facilitating their application with the macromolecules or bio-molecules involved. Furthermore, mesoporous materials possess the high surface area, the large pore volume, the highly ordered mesostructure, the designable chemical composition, the modifiable surface property and the controllable morphology. All of these features endow mesoporous materials with high applicability in various applications, e.g., catalysis, drug delivery and chemical absorptions.
