Abstract: Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxane (POSS) has attracted considerable interest in materials science due to its well-defined nano-scale organic-inorganic structure, which makes it an ideal building block for constructing nano-structured hybrid materials and nanocomposites. In this article, we highlight some recent developments in applications of POSS materials: 1) improving thermal and mechanical properties of polymers through incorporation of POSS into polymer matrices to form nanocomposites; 2) using POSS as a building block for design and synthesis of POSS-containing organic semiconductor materials to achieve high photo-luminescence/electron luminescence quantum efficiency in organic light emitting diodes and enhanced performance in electrochromatic devices; 3) exploiting POSS as a hydrophobic unit to develop amphiphilic polymers for drug/gene delivery and formation of hydrogels. A future direction for the development of POSS-containing materials is also proposed for applications in organic photovoltaic and other high-performance materials. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2011.
