Special Issue "Advanced Porous Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2019.
Department of Heterogeneous Catalysis, Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung, Kaiser-Wilhelm-Platz 1, D-45470 Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany
Interests: heterogeneous catalysis; crystallography; in situ diffraction and spectroscopy; energy related inorganic materials; hydrogen carriers
The class of porous materials covers a broad range of organic and inorganic compounds among which polymer foams, ceramics, mesoporous metal oxides, alumosilicates, metal organic frameworks, or porous carbon materials are only some prominent examples. Porosity in this context describes the presence of channels or cavities either in the crystal structure or in hierarchically structured materials ranging from micropores (<2 nm) to mesopores (2–50 nm) and/or macropores (>50 nm). The varieties of chemical compositions, pore architectures, and pore sizes offer the possibility for a large number of applications. Porous materials are used for example as carriers in drug release, as catalysts, in electronic or optical devices, or for separation and fixation of environmentally hazardous compounds. This Special Issue aims to bring together the actual status of research on advanced porous materials including various aspects such as new concepts for synthesis, the use of porous materials in technical processes, or the introduction of advanced characterization techniques.

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. Inorganics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
