The intent of this brief overview is to present a selected review of some of the current research in the area of mesoporous materials. Not included are porous materials in the range of 50 nm to several microns which also have been described recently and are currently being studied. There is now a continuum of nearly monodispersed porosities that can be created for almost any mean pore size for a variety of compositions and structural phases through the mesoscale regime. The evolution of the development of these materials and their applications will be an exciting part of the future.
