    Lamellar and hexagonal structures of new silica-based hybrids were directly formed from newly designed alkylsiloxane oligomers 1. This approach based on the self-assembly of single precursors provides a novel pathway to ordered microporous silica as well as mesostructured silica-based hybrid materials (see scheme, 1) hydrolysis and polycondensation, 2) self-assembly).
