Part of the Lecture Notes in Chemistry book series (LNC, volume 100)


Titanium-based mesoporous materials are always the strong strength in material science. In this part, the chapter has been divided into four parts to elaborately clarify the titanium-based materials. We carefully introduced the history of mesoporous materials and the preparation and application of mesoporous TiO2 materials. Additionally, we presented mesoporous TiO2–SiO2 materials and Ti–SiO2 nanomaterials. Furthermore, we analyzed their application in photocatalysis, such as organic pollutant degradation, photocatalytic hydrogen production, CO2 photoreduction, and NO/NO2 photoreduction. The abovementioned all provide us some inspiration in the field of energy and environment.
