Mesoporous materials are promising novel components in several emerging nanotechnology devices within many domains of applications (medical, energy, electronics, optics, environment, etc), and significant current efforts are dedicated to their development. Materials with increasing complexities, both in terms of structure and composition, can now be prepared by rational design, leading to the discovery of novel interesting physical chemical properties. The scope of this symposium is to bring together recent investigations dealing with synthesis, processing, and integration of advanced functional mesoporous materials for existing and emerging applications. Covered topics:1) Existing applications: heterogeneous catalysis, macromolecular separation, gas sensing, optics etc.

2) Emerging applications: drug delivery, therapeutic vectors, diagnosis agents, photovoltaics, fuel cells, battery, data storage, micro and nanofluidics, etc.

3) Original synthesis and integration methods: “top-down”, “bottom-up”, nano-in-micro, multiscale, hierarchical, nanocomposite and hybrid materials.

4) Novel functionalities and novel structures.
