We used polyisoprene-block-ethyleneoxide copolymers as structure-directing agents to synthesise well-ordered and highly-crystalline mesoporous WO 3 architectures that possess improved photocatalytic properties due to enhanced dye-adsorption in absence of diffusion limitation. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
