- Mesoporous materials;
Mesoporous films with almost “single-crystalline” arrangements of spherical pores are obtained by “evaporation- induced self-assembly”: the films are dip-coated onto a sublayer with sufficiently different surface tension and nanometer-scale periodicity. A film with almost single-crystalline (biaxially oriented) pore structure nucleating on an appropriately mesostructured sublayer is shown in the figure and on the cover.
