The invention discloses a method of making a mesoporous material with hexagonaily arranged mesopores comprising the following steps: a) dissolving a surfactant in water to form a surfactant solution; b) adding an acid to the surfactant solution to form a mixture having pH less than 2; c) adding a silica precursor to said mixture to form a precipitate; d) aging the precipitate; e) filtering, washing and drying the aged precipitate of step d) and subjecting said precipitate to calcination. An alternative method of making the mesoporous material is also disclosed. The mesoporous material is suitable for supporting a catalyst. Furthermore, the invention describes a supported metal catalyst incorporating such a mesoporous material.
