Materials with hierarchical porosity are a current exciting area in materials chemistry and are attractive for many applications such as photonics, catalysis, adsorption/desorption, drug delivery… This review highlights the parallel development of the mesostructuring and macrostructuring routes to synthesize siliceous materials with highly controlled porosity. A particular focus is given on the combination of surfactant/colloidal dual templating which constitutes a powerful method to shape the textural/morphological properties of the siliceous materials at the meso- and macroscale. Nano-engineering of the structuring agents and the study of their interaction with the silica precursor (with the help of theoretical simulations) are presented. Strategies to improve diffusion of species within the hierarchical porous networks are proposed and put into perspectives. Besides, this chapter will also highlight some of the recent applications of functionalized 3D ordered macroporous–mesoporous silica materials in heterogeneous catalysis . Selected applications like biofuel synthesis, volatile organic compound removal, and oxidation reactions are examined. The impact of hierarchical materials on the catalytic performance is compared with mono-modal pore size materials.
