Abstract

original image

Suits you sir! Ordered inorganic porous materials can be tailored to optimally host and protect proteins. In the early years of enzyme adsorption in ordered porous materials, mesoporous silicas were the prominent supports, but today there exists a variety of porous materials that can be designed efficiently for the uptake of proteins. Periodic mesoporous organosilicas (PMOs), metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) or magnetic porous materials are only some of them.
