Formatted Abstract/Summary
To provide a comprehensive overview of the area of nanoporousmaterials, this chapter will begin with a brief introduction to nanoscienceand nanotechnology, and the importance of nanomaterials. The basicconcepts and definitions in relation to porous materials and nanoporousmaterials will be given to understand the context of nanoporous materials.Following this introduction, a systematical classification of the types andscope of nanoporous materials will be presented. The properties and theircharacterisation and measurement methods will be briefly described beforemajor applications in various fields are reviewed. Finally in this chapter, key scientific and engineering issues and future directions are identified aschallenges and opportunities to researchers in this field.
