This tutorial review focuses on the application of mesoporous silica materials, primarily MCM-41 and SBA-15, for the removal of organic pollutants in the vapour phase. After briefly providing an introduction into the types of mesosilica covered in this review article the information is presented on a topic by topic basis and covers mesosilica and its interaction with vapour phase organic pollutants under the general subject headings of (i) adsorption isotherms and temperature programme desorption, (ii) dynamic adsorption experiments and (iii) gas separations.
