Research and development of novel functional hybrid materials and nanocomposites with extraordinary functionalities has become one of the most expanding fields in materials chemistry during recent years. One reason for this is that this class of research bridges various scientific disciplines. In an interdisciplinary manner, inorganic and organic chemistry, physical and biological sciences are united in the search for novel methods to create unique materials. The compounds formed often possess exciting new properties for future functional meterials and technological applications. The forthcoming special issues of the "International Journal of Molecular Sciences" shall meet the requirements for an actual overview over this most interesting research discipline.
