Chemistry of Silica and Zeolite-Based Materials: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications covers a wide range of topics related to silica-based materials—from design and synthesis, to applications in different fields of science and technology. As an earth-abundant oxide, silica is an ideal and basic material for the application of various oxides, thus the science and technology of silica-based materials are fundamentally important for understanding other oxide-based materials. The book examines nanosolvation and confined molecules in silica hosts, catalysis and photocatalysis, photonics, photosensors, photovoltaics, energy, environmental sciences, drug delivery, and health.

Written by a highly experienced and internationally renowned team from around the world, this book is ideal for chemists, material scientists, chemical engineers, physicists, biologists, biomedical sciences, environmental scientists, toxicologists and pharma scientists.
