Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Last decade is characterised by the most remarkable progress in the introduction and further development of advanced microporous materials such as metal-organic framework materials (MOFs), single wall carbon nanotubes, and zeolites. These materials are important for many applications including catalysis, separations, molecular storage and sensor development. The majority of these applications involves transport of molecules and ions in micropore networks of these matarials. Hence, detailed fundamental understanding of transport properties of guest species in micropores is crucial for both applied and basic research related to microporous solids. Recent studies of sorbate diffusion in microporous materials resulted in fascinating discoveries related to normal diffusion, and also anomalous diffusion, such as single-file diffusion in micropores. These discoveries become possible due to most recent development of many new experimental techniques allowing monitoring molecular transport on various length scales of displacements under different experimental conditions and by the further development and application of multiscale computer simulations.
