10.1 Introduction

Progress in nanoscience and nanotechnology has accelerated the developments in porous materials during the past decades [1–5]. In addition to the traditional applications of porous materials, that is, adsorption, ion exchange, and catalysis, their uses have been broadened to emerging areas such as sensing, low reflective index (low-n) and low dielectric constant (low-k) materials for electronic devices, and drug delivery. To sustain their developments at a rapid pace, the concept of “nanoarchitectonics” should be applied to further innovate the materials ...
