Hybrid organic-inorganic materials...

with long-range order have been prepared by a classical sol-gel process. Precursors such as (MeO)3Si-R-Si(OMe)3, R being a thermotropic mesogen-like organic group, have been studied and a self-association process in solution between the molecular units during the formation of the Si-O-Si network is found.
