Hybrid Inorganic–Organic Mesoporous Materials

Another brick in the wall: Organic groups that contain several alkoxysilane substituents are applied in the synthesis of hybrid inorganic–organic mesoporous materials (see scheme). The resulting materials contain the organic moiety as an integral part of the wall. Depending on the functionality of the organic groups and on the properties of the functionalized porous material a plethora of potential applications can be envisioned.
