Mesoporous solid superacid molecular sieve films have been prepared (see Figure) and used as photocatalysts. The new class of superacid possesses large surface area, uniform pore size, and accessible 3D mesoporous architecture. These are attractive properties for catalytic or photocatalytic applications.
