Synthesis and Application of Mesoporous Materials
Mesoporous materials have attracted much attention both in basic preparation and practical applications because of their large surface area, ordered structures, and uniform pore sizes. Our research focuses on the synthesis of such materials and we also attempt to apply these materials, in photo-electronic, energy, and bio-medicine applications. For the synthesis of the materials, we combine the bottom-up self-assembly chemistry with top-down lithographic technique to fabricate advanced functionalized mesoporous materials. The processes we used include both chemical synthesis and engineering fabrication. We therefore study the effects of various synthetic conditions on the phase transformation of mesostructures, the generation and analysis of mesostructures, and the functionalization of the obtained materials. For the application of the materials, we currently are interested in applying our materials in the following three areas: 1. Photo-electronic: Dye-sensitized solar cells. 2. Energy: Green energy, fuel cells. 3. Bio-medicine: Drug/gene delivery and controlled release. Based on the basic and practical researches, we hope that we not only produce new materials but also contribute to human health and environmental sustainability.
