The preparation of hierarchical large-pore cage-type periodic mesoporous organosilicas is reported in a Communication by Zhou et al. (on p. 2627). The hydrophobicity and structure of these novel materials are benefi cial for lipase entrapment and provide signifi cantly enhanced activity and stability compared to the native enzyme.
