Synthesis and applications of emulsion-templated porous materials

Author affiliations

Abstract

This review describes the use of macroemulsions as templates for the production of porous materials. We focus on the use of high internal phase emulsions in order to produce interconnected open porous structures. The review encompasses porous hydrophobic polymers, hydrophilic polymers, composites, silica, metal oxides, and metals. The potential applications of these materials are also discussed.
