Future applications of porous materials require novel ones with designed morphology (e.g., pore shape and volume) and predetermined surface properties. The pore distribution and nature of interaction between the porous host and its guest sorbate is directly correlated to the ability to achieve a desired function in a particular application. Hence, a bottom-up synthetic approach at the nano-scale via templated and functionalization mechanisms is needed to tailor the final materials properties.
