During the past two decades, the development of novel mesoporous materials have been at the forefront of the development of materials science, and therefore they are expected to find applications in fields of catalysis, separation, sensor, drug delivery, and electronics, etc. This paper is aimed to give a brief introduction to the background of the synthesis, characterization and applications of the silica mesoporous crystals.
