Abstract: Nanostrucutured and nanoporous materials are the materials with at least one dimension and a pore size in nanoscale, respectively. The nanomaterials have been intensively studied for various applications ranging from energy storage to catalysis due to their unique physical and chemical properties. Nanoporous materials also plays a key role in a broad range of applications where high surface area and specific pore structures are important. Heterogeneous catalysis has been developed for over 100 years with numerous applications in the petroleum and chemical industries, where zeolites and porous materials are widely used. The development of novel nanostructured and nanoporous materials with specific properties and morphologies is of great interest for application in heterogeneous catalysis. In this work, various types of nanostructured and nanoporous materials were synthesized and characterized. Some of these materials were employed as heterogeneous catalysts for several different reactions.
