We report the direct supramolecular assembly of organofunctional compositions of the type (SiO2)1-x-(LSiO1.5)x (L = mercaptopropyl) with a mesocellular foam structure (x = 0.20), along with a new hybrid structure in which the windows of a foam structure are filled with a wormhole framework (x = 0.30−0.50).
