The chemistry of organo silanetriols is reviewed covering the aspects of synthesis, structural chemistry, reactivity, properties and applications over the last 15 years. Besides relevant progress in established fields like supramolecular chemistry, surface modification and metallasiloxane formation, recent advances include structural investigations in liquid and gaseous states and studies concerning the bio-activity of silanetriols. Based on irreversible condensation starting from silanetriols fascinating cage compounds and cerasomes have been reported as well as silanetriol-modified biopolymers and nanopatterning applications.
