Mesoporous materials featuring high surface areas, narrow pore size distribution and tuneable pores diameters have attracted a great deal of attention since their discovery in the 1980s due to their promising properties and applications in various areas including adsorption, separation, sensing and catalysis. Innovation through specific and rational design has led to the development of a wide range of these materials with varying morphologies (e.g. hexagonal, cubic, rod-like), structures (e.g. silicates, carbons, metal oxides) and functionalities that currently makes this field one of the most developed in materials science. However, many advances in the field are recently diversifying this exciting area of work to promising applications in drug delivery, tumoral therapy, biomedicine, etc.
This special issue is aimed to provide a range of selected contributions on advances in the design and preparation of different mesoporous materials with their applications in different areas (e.g. catalysis, separation, sensing, adsorption, drug delivery, etc).

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
