The discovery of ordered mesoporous materials (OMMs) synthesized in the presence of surfactant templates was a significant breakthrough in the field of porous materials. OMMs offer unprecedented potential for the immobilization of catalysts because of their large pore spaces, ordered pore sizes, and relatively homogeneous pore surfaces. This article briefly summarizes recent advances in the immobilization of homogeneous and enzyme catalysts on OMMs.
