The project aims to expand the structural diversity of nanoporous materials and to provide concepts for the design of multimodal porous particles with properties that are optimized for specific applications. By using the multimodal silicate-based materials as hard templates and transferring the defined multimodal porosity to organic polymers, the samples prepared in the course of the project cover a wide range of chemistries. This large structural and chemical diversity is the key to tailor-made porous particles for applications such as catalysis, drug delivery, environmental remediation, and sensing.
