Technical Abstract: Nanoporous materials possess organized pore distributions and increased surface areas. Advances in the systematic design of nanoporous materials enable incorporation of functionality for better sensitivity in detection methods, increased capacity of sorbents, and improved selectivity and yield in catalyst-based synthesis. This chapter surveys the applications of nanoporous materials to improve food safety and utilization of agricultural products. Furthermore, agricultural commodities serve as feedstocks in the development of nanoporous materials.
