Summary:
A simple, effective and controllable synthetic method for porous materials for markets of photo-catalysis, carbon capture, gas storage & separation and beyond

Development Stage:
Description:
Porous materials are of technological significance in a broad range of market applications in catalysis, CO2 capture, gas storage, separations, or in situ reaction control. For instance, the carbon capture market was an estimated USD 4.25 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.6% to USD 8.05 billion in 2021.

However, making the porous structure is often complicated and lacks precise control. Current technologies for porous materials uses oxy-hydroxides as starting materials and fabricate porous structures. The pore size and the distribution of these materials are designed using additives and optimization of kinetics of sintering process.

ISURF #04608 demonstrated a novel technique to generate porous metal oxides by using polymer chemistry and with easy design and control for pore structure and end product properties. This technology is more robust and simple than currently available technologies. This technique has already been demonstrated as useful for the conversion of CO2 into methane.

Advantage:
• Synthesis is more robust and simple than existing technology
• Easy design and control of pore structure
• Enables mixed composition materials to be easily created
• Photocatalysis of these porous material structures has been demonstrated to be superior to other metal oxides, such as TiO2 or VOx
