Synthesis and application of porous materials as supports for nanoparticle, single-site, and biomolecule heterogeneous catalysts
The application of porous materials as supports for catalysts has been a focus of academia and industry for many years. Mesoporous silicas (MSN) and ordered mesoporous carbons have been used due to their unique properties such as high surface area, tunable pore sizes, and chemical and thermal stability. These support materials often lend further stability to the catalysts they host, enabling their use in a wider variety of reaction environments. One type of porous support that has seen extensive use on an industrial scale is zeolites, and these can be paired with metal carbides formed in situ ...
