(Figure Presented) Organized macroporous-mesoporous alumina can be obtained via a dual-templating approach. Monodispersed polystyrene beads promote macropore formation, while a P123 surfactant templating agent drives the formation of ordered hexagonal mesopores throughout the alumina framework. These well-defined pore networks coexist over a wide range of temperatures and macropore sizes.
