Massive applications and advantages of porous hybrid materials based on polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) have generated enormous research interest in the development of porous POSS hybrid materials in both the industries and the academics. POSS, a well-known nanoporous inorganic building block materials with the formula (RSiO1.5)n, (n ≥ 6) including definite cage-shaped three-dimensional structures is surrounded by organic functional groups, which were utilized to produce porous hybrid materials with organic molecules via copolymerization, grafting, and blending and also with metals by coordination. This chapter reviews the properties and importance of porosity of POSS and POSS hybrid materials.
