Mesoporous materials

Mesoporous materials have pores in the range of 2-50 nm which makes them suitable for drug carriers and supports for catalysts. My main research interest is to understand the correlation between the material characteristics, e.g. pore size, particle morphology, and chemical composition, and the synthesis process.
