Chapter 2

Nanoporous Materials

Alexander D. Pogrebnjak and Vyacheslav M. Beresnev


This Chapter describes a whole complex of nanoporous materials. A classification of porous material (an inside pore, an opened pore, a perforating pore, an opened-line-end pore) is considered. Three different ways of interaction of the nanoporous material with a surrounding medium are demonstrated: a-adsorption; b-filtration, c-catalysis using: 1) small molecule and 2) big molecule. The problem of how to control size, form of pores, and uniformity of their distribution is considered.
