Guest editors Martin Hartmann and Wilhelm Schwieger introduce the Hierarchically-structured Porous Materials: From Basic Understanding to Applications of Chemical Society Reviews
Hierarchically porous materials: synthesis strategies and structure design
This review addresses recent advances in synthesis strategies of hierarchically porous materials and their structural design from micro-, meso- to macro-length scale.
Recent advances in the textural characterization of hierarchically structured nanoporous materials
This review focuses on important aspects of applying physisorption for the pore structural characterization of hierarchical materials such as mesoporous zeolites.
Three-dimensional macro-structures of two-dimensional nanomaterials
This review summarizes the recent progress and efforts in the synthesis, structure, properties, and applications of three-dimensional macro-structures of two-dimensional nanomaterials.
Applications of hierarchically structured porous materials from energy storage and conversion, catalysis, photocatalysis, adsorption, separation, and sensing to biomedicine
A comprehensive review of the recent progress in the applications of hierarchically structured porous materials is given.
Transport properties of hierarchical micro–mesoporous materials
This work provides an overview of different experimental techniques of diffusion measurements in porous materials and discusses transport properties of several classes of hierarchically organized micro-mesoporous materials.
Sol–gel synthesis of monolithic materials with hierarchical porosity
The development of synthetic routes to porous materials containing multiple, discrete sets of pores having disparate length scales is of high interest for a wide range of applications.
Layer like porous materials with hierarchical structure
Various hierarchical structures have been produced spontaneously or by modification from layered solids consisting of extended sheets with thickness not greater than a few nanometers.
Hierarchy concepts: classification and preparation strategies for zeolite containing materials with hierarchical porosity
Starting from a basic classification of “hierarchical porosity” this review gives a broad overview of preparation routes towards hierarchically porous all-zeolite and zeolite containing composite materials.
Hierarchy in inorganic membranes
Inorganic membranes usually possess an unsymmetrical cross section showing a hierarchical structure: the ZIF-8 separation layer is deposited on a graded titania support.
Synthesis, characterisation, and catalytic evaluation of hierarchical faujasite zeolites: milestones, challenges, and future directions
The preparation of hierarchical faujasite catalysts is challenging yet rewarding.
Catalytic test reactions for the evaluation of hierarchical zeolites
This tutorial review discusses the challenges in evaluating the catalytic performance of a hierarchical catalyst compared to its parent zeolite using the Thiele modulus and the effectiveness factor.

About this collection
It is our pleasure to present this Chemical Society Reviews themed issue which samples the recent progress in hierarchically-structured porous materials. Guest edited by Wilhelm Schwieger and Martin Hartmann, this issue bridges a wide range of aspects of hierarchical materials - from theoretical views of porous systems, their preparation strategies and characterisation methods, to their current and potential applications. New articles will be added to this collection as they are published.
