Construction of nanoarchitectures using cage siloxane oligomers as element blocks is of much interest because of its excellent potential for creating novel porous materials. In this review, our recent work on the fabrication of siloxane-based nanostructures from cage siloxanes is presented. The arrangement of cage siloxanes units is controlled by various methods, including amphiphilic self-Assembly and hydrogen bonding of silanol groups, toward the preparation of well-defined porous siloxane-based materials.
