The cover picture shows a schematic representation of single channels from periodic mesoporous organosilicas that contain organic groups in the framework and channel space of a mesoporous material. By incorporating organic groups into the framework of the materials, new hierarchical structures with interesting mechanical, optical, electrical, separation, and catalytic properties may be created. The structure-function relations, significance, and potential vitality of this new class of materials is discussed in more detail by G. A. Ozin et al. on p. 2507 ff.
