A new class of periodic mesoporous organo-silicas (PMOs) with organic groups incorporated inside the channel walls of the material is discussed. In particular, the unique properties and chemistry exhibited by periodic mesoporous methylenesilica, an isoelectronic analogue of periodic mesoporous silica, are highlighted. Finally, some of the advances made in our group and others, as well as future directions that we envision in the field are described.
