Summary

Organosilicon μ-networks are utilized as nanoreactors consisting of single crosslinked molecules. Functionalized core-shell particles with a core comprising reactive Si-H moieties are utilized to reduce noble metal salts like HAuC14 to elemental gold clusters, which are topologically immobilized in the core of the networks. The preparation of hollow micro-networks leads to molecular containers which can be loaded with reactants.
