The synthesis of highly crystalline macro-meso-microporous monolithic Cu3(btc)2 (HKUST-1; btc(3-) = benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxylate) is demonstrated by direct conversion of Cu(OH)2-based monoliths while preserving the characteristic macroporous structure. The high mechanical strength of the monoliths is promising for possible applications to continuous flow(More)
Monolithic macroporous zirconia (ZrO2) derived from ionic precursors has been successfully fabricated via the epoxide-mediated sol-gel route accompanied by phase separation in the presence of propylene oxide (PO) and poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO). The addition of PO used as an acid scavenger mediates the gelation, whereas PEO enhances the(More)
The structure formation process of hierarchically porous alumina gels has been investigated by in situ small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). The measurement was performed on the sol-gel solution containing aluminum chloride hexahydrate (AlCl(3)·6H(2)O), poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO), and propylene oxide (PO). The temporal divergence of scattering intensity in(More)
Monolithic aluminum phosphate (AlPO4) with a macro-mesoporous structure has been successfully prepared via the sol-gel process accompanied by phase separation in the presence of poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO). Gelation of the system has been mediated by propylene oxide (PO), while PEO induces a phase separation. The dried gel is amorphous, whereas the(More)
