Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Porous solids have been thoroughly explored in a wide range of scientific areas. Particularly, Ordered Mesoporous Materials (pore size 2 to 50 nm) are a subset of porous solids that have a regular porous structure, uniform pore size and high surface area. Further, Ordered Mesoporous Materials have been produced using various materials, such as silica, carbon, metals, metal oxides, and even hybrid materials. The unique physicochemical properties displayed by these materials have triggered their application in different areas, such as energy conversion and storage, biomedicine, environmental management, and others. This Special Issue is open to novel and high-impact works involving:

  • All topics related to the application of ordered mesoporous materials in catalysis, environmental management, electrochemistry, sensors, imaging, biomedicine, etc.;
  • The synthesis of ordered mesoporous materials;
  • The physicochemical characterization of ordered mesoporous materials;
  • The modification of ordered mesoporous materials;

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.

In the past two decades, great progress has been made in the aspects of fabrication and application of ordered mesoporous metal oxides. Ordered mesoporous metal oxides have attracted more and more attention due to their large surface areas and pore volumes, unblocked pore structure, and good thermal stabilities. Compared with non-porous metal oxides, the most prominent feature is their ability to interact with molecules not only on their outer surface but also on the large internal surfaces of the material, providing more accessible active sites for the reactants. This review carefully describes the characteristics, classification and synthesis of ordered mesoporous metal oxides in detail. Besides, it also summarizes the catalytic application of ordered mesoporous metal oxides in the field of carbon dioxide conversion and resource utilization, which provides prospective viewpoints to reduce the emission of greenhouse gas and the inhibition of global warming. Although the scope of current review is mainly limited to the ordered mesoporous metal oxides and their application in the field of CO2 catalytic conversion via heterogeneous catalysis processes, we believe that it will provide new insights and viewpoints to the further development of heterogeneous catalytic materials.
