Nanostructured Materials

Nano-sized Bulk-Materials Nanoporous Materials
  • Cluster compounds
  • Nanoparticles (colloids)
  • Microporous materials:
    zeolites, zeotypes, MOFs, reversed micelles
  • Mesoporous materials:
    PMSs/PMXs, PMS-types, Si(NH)2, metals

(according to Adv. Mater. 199810, 144)
