High surface area nanoorous materials (materials with internal pore diameters on the angstrom or nanometer length scale) have unique properties that make them ideally suited for gas separation and storage, as well as heterogeneous catalysis. The development of new classes of nanoporous materials such as porous activated carbons, zeolites, metal-organic framework materials and porous polymers have spurred research into their possible application to the global problem of the provision and utilisation of sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels. We will present several case studies demonstrating the use of nanoporous materials to address problems in sustainable energies, such as the safe and efficient storage of sustainable hydrogen energy and the catalytic upgrading of liquid fuels from bio-derived feedstocks.
