Abstract/Summary Research on the synthesis and the application of mesoporous non-siliceous materials is an emerging area attracting a lot of attention by researchers in the field. It is rapidly growing because of the existence of a lot of opportunities in the design, the synthesis, and potential applications of novel non-siliceous materials. This chapter presents an overview of the advances in the synthesis of mesoporous non-siliceous materials such as metal oxides, metals, semiconductors, polymers, carbons, and nitrides. Mostly, soft- and hard-templating methods have been used for the preparation of the non-siliceous mesoporous materials. Using the soft-templating approach and varying the synthesis conditions, surfactant concentration, solution pH, and the temperature, the structure and the textural parameters of the mesoporous non-siliceous materials can be controlled. Mesoporous metals are a fascinating group of materials derived through the soft-templating approach, and they are promising for the production of sensors, fuel cell supports, electronics, optics, and catalysts, since they possess a high specific surface area, conductivity, and a well-ordered porous structure. Some of the possible applications of these materials are addressed in this chapter.
