45_20/2006Cover Picture: Silica-Based Mesoporous Organic–Inorganic Hybrid Materials (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 20/2006)

Like Honeycomb is how the pore structures of silica-based mesoporous organic–inorganic hybrid materials often appear. In the Review on page 3216 ff., M. Fröba and co-workers give an overview of their preparation. The cover picture shows hybrids whose pores are functionalized with cyclam (ligand), sulforhodamine B (laser die), and a cinchona derivative (for heterogeneous asymmetric catalysis). Particular attention is given to the class of periodic mesoporous organosilicas (PMOs).
