An overview of the synthesis of ordered mesoporous materials
In this viewpoint, we focus on two highly-cited papers published in Chem. Commun. by Inagaki et al. in 1993 and Kleitz et al. in 2003, respectively, which are undoubted landmarks in the development of ordered mesoporous materials. Here, we present an overview of their historical contributions to the synthesis and evolution of this field since its discovery, and the progress based on the achievements.
