The design of new hybrid materials with tailored properties at the nano‐, meso‐, and macro‐scale, with the use of structural functional nanobuilding units, is carried out to obtain specific multi‐functional materials. Organization into controlled 1D, 2D, and 3D architectures with selected functionalities is key for developing advanced catalysts, but this is hardly accomplished using conventional synthesis procedures. The use of pre‐formed nanostructures, derived either from known materials or made with specific innovative synthetic methodologies, has enormous potential in the generation of multi‐site catalytic materials for one‐pot processes. The present concept article introduces a new archetype wherein self‐assembled nanostructured builder units are the base for the design of multifunctional catalysts, which combine catalytic efficiency with fast reactant and product diffusion. The article addresses a new generation of versatile hybrid organic‐inorganic multi‐site catalytic materials for their use in the production of (chiral) high‐added‐value products within the scope of chemicals and fine chemicals production. The use of those multi‐reactive solids for more nanotechnological applications, such as sensors, due to the inclusion of electron donor‐acceptor structural arrays is also considered, together with the adsorption‐desorption capacities due to the combination of hydrophobic and hydrophilic sub‐domains. The innovative structured hybrid materials for multipurpose processes here considered, can allow the development of multi‐stage one‐pot reactions with industrial applications, using the materials as one nanoreactor systems, favoring more sustainable production pathways with economic, environmental and energetic advantages.
