Siloxane-based nanomaterials have a wide variety of applications, such as catalysis, adsorption, coatings, optics, and nanomedicine. The use of siloxane-based building blocks with well-defined structures and compositions is a promising approach for designing siloxane-based nanomaterials. This chapter summarizes the recent progress that has been made in both the molecular design of silane/siloxane precursors and their controlled assembly.
