TL;DR: In this paper, the synthesis of mesoporous inorganic solids from calcination of aluminosilicate gels in the presence of surfactants is described, in which the silicate material forms inorganic walls between ordered surfactant micelles.
Abstract: MICROPOROUS and mesoporous inorganic solids (with pore diameters of ≤20 A and ∼20–500 A respectively)1 have found great utility as catalysts and sorption media because of their large internal surface area. Typical microporous materials are the crystalline framework solids, such as zeolites2, but the largest pore dimensions found so far are ∼10–12 A for some metallophosphates3–5 and ∼14 A for the mineral cacoxenite6. Examples of mesoporous solids include silicas7 and modified layered materials8–11, but these are invariably amorphous or paracrystalline, with pores that are irregularly spaced and broadly distributed in size8,12. Pore size can be controlled by intercalation of layered silicates with a surfactant species9,13, but the final product retains, in part, the layered nature of the precursor material. Here we report the synthesis of mesoporous solids from the calcination of aluminosilicate gels in the presence of surfactants. The material14,15 possesses regular arrays of uniform channels, the dimensions of which can be tailored (in the range 16 A to 100 A or more) through the choice of surfactant, auxiliary chemicals and reaction conditions. We propose that the formation of these materials takes place by means of a liquid-crystal 'templating' mechanism, in which the silicate material forms inorganic walls between ordered surfactant micelles.
TL;DR: In this paper, a review of the preparation of ordered mesoporous catalysts is presented, and the essential properties of the resulting materials are described in the first part of this review.
Abstract: Ordered mesoporous catalysts could open the door for new catalytic processes, based partly on novel principles, owing to their hitherto unprecedented intrinsic features. For the preparation of ordered mesoporous catalysts, many strategies have been described. These strategies and the essential properties of the resulting materials are described in the first part of this review. Catalytic processes over such mesoporous materials, especially such reactions where the specific features of ordered mesoporous catalysts are exploited, are described in the second part.

TL;DR: In this article, a mesoporous molecular sieve of MCM-41 type (MCM41-PEI) has been used as a CO2 adsorbent.
Abstract: The objective of the work presented here is to develop a nanoporous solid adsorbent which can serve as a “molecular basket” for CO2 in the condensed form Polyethylenimine (PEI)-modified mesoporous molecular sieve of MCM-41 type (MCM-41-PEI) has been prepared and tested as a CO2 adsorbent The physical properties of the adsorbents were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), N2 adsorption/desorption, and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) The characterizations indicated that the structure of the MCM-41 was preserved after loading the PEI, and the PEI was uniformly dispersed into the channels of the molecular sieve The CO2 adsorption/desorption performance was tested in a flow system using a microbalance to track the weight change The mesoporous molecular sieve had a synergetic effect on the adsorption of CO2 by PEI A CO2 adsorption capacity as high as 215 mg-CO2/g-PEI was obtained with MCM-41-PEI-50 at 75 °C, which is 24 times higher than that of the MCM-41 and is even 2 times that of the pure
TL;DR: In this paper, a mesoporous molecular sieve of MCM-41 type with polyethylenimine (PEI) was used for the preparation of CO2 adsorbents.
Abstract: Novel CO2 “molecular basket” adsorbents were prepared by synthesizing and modifying the mesoporous molecular sieve of MCM-41 type with polyethylenimine (PEI) The MCM-41-PEI adsorbents were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), N2 adsorption/desorption, thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) as well as the CO2 adsorption/desorption performance This paper reports on the effects of preparation conditions (PEI loadings, preparation methods, PEI loading procedures, types of solvents, solvent/MCM-41 ratios, addition of additive, and Si/Al ratios of MCM-41) on the CO2 adsorption/desorption performance of MCM-41-PEI With the increase in PEI loading, the surface area, pore size and pore volume of the PEI-loaded MCM-41 adsorbent decreased When the PEI loading was higher than 30 wt%, the mesoporous pores began to be filled with PEI and the mesoporous molecular sieve MCM-41 showed a synergetic effect on the adsorption of CO2 by PEI At PEI loading of 50 wt% in MCM-41-PEI, the highest CO2 adsorption capacity of 246 mg/g-PEI was obtained, which is 30 times higher than that of the MCM-41 and is about 23 times that of the pure PEI Impregnation was found to be a better method for the preparation of MCM-41-PEI adsorbents than mechanical mixing method The adsorbent prepared by a one-step impregnation method had a higher CO2 adsorption capacity than that of prepared by a two-step impregnation method The higher the Si/Al ratio of MCM-41 or the solvent/MCM-41 ratio, the higher the CO2 adsorption capacity Using polyethylene glycol as additive into the MCM-41-PEI adsorbent increased not only the CO2 adsorption capacity, but also the rates of CO2 adsorption/desorption A simple model was proposed to account for the synergetic effect of MCM-41 on the adsorption of CO2 by PEI
