The goal of this thesis was to synthesize novel porous composites using supercritical CO2 assisted procedures and to demonstrate their usability in emerging applications. In particular, composites based on two classes of mesoporous solids, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and graphene-oxide (GO) aerogels, were the focus of this work. All materials are characterized by possessing a significant amount of pores in the mesosize range, although they are distinct regarding their structural and pore arrangement. Analysis of the composite properties and structural changes occurring throughout the processing was carried out with the aim of understanding their role and behavior in certain biomedical or catalytic applications.
