The three-dimensional sponge-like mesoporous material TUD-1 is straightforward to prepare. Its synthesis can readily be modified to introduce metals into the framework of TUD-1, imparting many different catalytic activities. M-TUD-1 catalysts have proven to be very active, unlimited by diffusion and very stable. By combining two metals into one TUD-1 catalyst, synergy between Lewis and Brønsted acid sites could be induced; incorporation of zeolites similarly gave rise to synergy. In addition to successful applications in redox-, acid- and photo-catalysis TUD-1 proved to be an excellent carrier material for catalysts, enabling new applications. TUD-1 was used as a contrast agent and drug delivery system, indicating that this material is but at the beginning of its potential applications
