Dendrimersilica hybrid mesoporous materials

Author affiliations


Dendrimers and silica inorganic materials are two effective building blocks that have attracted growing interest in both fundamental and applied material chemistry. The fruitful association of these soft and hard skeletons resulted in an unlimited library of materials and nanodevices with different tailored properties. The aim of this review is to shed light on different strategies of combination of dendrimersilica materials. Special attention has been accorded to the porosity control and the accessibility of the functional groups of these organic–inorganic hybrid mesoporous materials.
