Preparation, structure, and performance in application of materials are in close interaction with each other. Hence, a detailed analysis of the pore structure of a functional material in combination with a detailed characterisation of the performance can provide crucial insights to understand the influence of individual parameters during preparation and to identify structural limitations towards a more successful utilization. The obtained results can be used to tune the preparation towards an optimized pore structure for the aspired application. Here, this is demonstrated exemplarily on the optimization of the packing protocol for capillary columns used in chromatographic separations utilizing confocal laser scanning microscopy. Similar studies have been initiated for other material types like monolithic silica structures and electrode utilizing focused ion beam scanning electron microscopy and are presented as a perspective.
