Porous materials are finding applications in many fields, such as membranes for water purification and gas separation, or the slow release of drugs. For porous (single crystal) semi-conductors, uses are emerging in areas like photonics, sensors, Li ion batteries, MEMS, and bio technology. These applications all require materials with consistent and reliable structures, and pore sizes may range from 0.4 nm in crystalline zeolite structures to 1000 nm in polymeric membrane systems. In semiconductors pore sizes range form a few nm to well above µm and morpholgies from straight cylinders to fractal. Similarly there is a wide range of fabrication techniques, such as lithography, phase inversion, templating and vapor deposition, and characterizing such materials has required advances in imaging and spectroscopy.
Given the high level of research interest in, and the importance of porous materials, a special edition of "Materials" has been devoted to this topic. Articles that focus on the characterization, fabrication, performance and modeling of porous materials are welcomed, and organic, inorganic and composite materials systems will be considered.
We look forward to receiving your manuscripts.

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.
