Microporous and Mesoporous Materials
Microporous and Mesoporous Materials is an international journal covering all aspects of porous solids classified as either microporous (pore width up to 2 nm) or mesoporous (pore width ca.2 to ca.50 nm). Typical examples are zeolites and zeolite-like materials, pillared or non-pillared clays, clathrasils and clathrates, carbon molecular sieves or mesoporous silica and silica-alumina (for example, of the M41S-type, with an ordered pore system), urea and related host substances, or porous metal oxides, salts and composite materials. Both natural and synthetic materials are within the scope of the journal. Topics which are particularly of interest include: all aspects of microporous and mesoporous solids occurring in nature; the synthesis of crystalline or amorphous materials with pores in the appropriate range; the physico-chemical, especially spectroscopic and microscopic characterization of such materials; their modification, for example by ion exchange or solid-state reactions; all topics related to diffusion of mobile species in the pores of such materials; adsorption (and other separation techniques) using microporous or mesoporous adsorbents; catalysis by such materials; host/guest interactions; theoretical chemistry and modelling of the above phenomena; all topics related to their application or potential application in industrial catalysis, separation technology, environmental protection, electrochemistry, membranes, sensors, optical devices, etc.The journal publishes original research papers, short communications, review articles and letters to the editor. In addition, it contains abstracts of pertinent patents, relevant news, meeting reports, book reviews and a calendar of forthcoming events.
