Abstract

Mesoporous organic-inorganic hybrid materials are an interesting class of materials, which combine the advantages of two worlds; the inorganic part builds a robust substrate while organic functions make them alive in a way that they can be potentially used in a number of applications. In this tutorial review, we provide an overview of how mesoporous materials are synthesised via the 'soft template' path and how the incorporation of organic functions can be achieved. Furthermore, a colourful survey full of examples is presented, providing a small overview of field of applications that can potentially benefit from the use of periodic mesoporous organosilicas (PMOs) and related materials.
