The latest developments in periodic mesoporous organosilicas (PMO) have been compiled. The discovery of mesoporous hybrid organosilicas with molecular scale periodicity resulting from alternating hydrophilic and hydrophobic layers, and a cost effective solution showing the use of allyl derivatives of the bis-silyl precursors are discussed. Relevant uses of the periodic mesoporous materials in diverse applications are summarized. For example, the metal-incorporated periodic mesoporous organic frameworks are likely to offer an advantage in catalytic transformations, while the functionalized PMOs show promise in fascinating catalytic applications via enhancing the physical properties of guest molecules and clusters. In general, the advancement in PMOs have showed great promise and are expected to deliver exciting achievable future findings. © 2006 The Chemical Society of Japan.
