About SBA Materials

SBA Materials develops functional porous inorganic and inorganic/organic hybrid materials for range of technologies. Different synthesis and processing conditions allow for a variety of material compositions, structures, and applications. They can be fabricated as thin and thick films, powders, fibers and even optically clear solid monoliths all consisting of highly ordered mesoporous networks. The resulting surface area is extraordinarily high and can be chemically isolated, e.g. with organic dyes, quantum dots, magnetic materials or biomaterials enabling applications ranging from electronics and optics to sensors, catalysts and biotechnology.
