Special Issue "Mesoporous Materials: From Synthesis to Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 December 2018).
Porous materials are structures with a high specific surface area, narrow pore size distribution and tuneable pore size distribution. These materials have emerged as interesting frameworks for the scientific community due their high potential in various areas, including adsorption, separation, sensing, and catalysis. The rational design of these porous structures has led to innovative materials with a wide range of structures, such as hexagonal, lamellar, rod-like or cubic in silicates, aluminosilicates, metal oxides or carbons. The obtained materials display a wide variety of funcionalities 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, desing of tuneable catalysts, etc.
This Special Issue is aimed to provide a range of original contributions detailing the synthesis, design, characterization and applications in different areas of porous materials (e.g., catalysis, separation, sensing, adsorption, drug delivery, etc).

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
