Abstract: This review describes the synthesis and characterization of inorganic materials containing polyoxometalates encapsulated in oxide matrices. Examples illustrating key aspects in terms of synthesis and applications are presented according to the nature of the final hybrid material: those based on non-structured silicas, on mesostructured silicas, on macrostructured silicas and on other oxides. In each part, key points of the synthetic protocols are highlighted and structural features and properties of the resultant hybrid nanocomposites are discussed.
Keywords: polyoxometalates; encapsulation; inorganic hybrid material; nanocomposites
