What are hybrids ?
by Prof. Clement Sanchez
An incredible amount of research investigations have appeared the last 10 years in the field of hybrids materials   indicating the growing interest of chemists, physicists and materials researchers to fully exploit this technical opportunity for creating materials and device with benefits of the best of the two worlds namely inorganic and organic...
Ormocer's for Integrated optical circuits
ORMOCER®s in general are a class of hybrid inorganic/organic materials which amongst other utilizations prove highly valuable for application in packaging of integrated circuits. They show good optical and dielectric properties as well as good thermal stability. Their chemical synthesis meets the requirements of microoptics and microelectronics industry since it enables highly reproducible low cost production of ORMOCER® micro structures.

Organic-Inorganic electronics
Mitzi, Chondroudis and Kagan review in this paper the crystal structures and physical properties of one family of crystalline, self-assembling, organic-inorganic hybrids based on the layered perovskite framework. Several recent demonstrations of electronic and optical devices based on organic-inorganic perovskites are presented.

Polyoxometalate-based organic-inorganic hybrid materials
The paper summarizes and reviews the current developments in the area of polyoxometalate (POM)-based organic-inorganic hybrid materials including POM-based organic- or organometallic-derived hybrid materials, charge transfer (CT) salts and organic-inorganic composite films. This review also provides insight into the rational synthesis and potential applications of these hybrid materials.
