Engineered interfaces displaying specific properties play a critical role in the design of smart functional materials. Hybrid organic/inorganic materials, which have attracted interest in both biological and chemical science, are a promising platform for the development of advanced interfaces. These materials have unique properties that arise from the co-presence of both the organic and inorganic component. This thesis explores the design of hybrid materials that show specific catalytic properties. In particular, materials having electrochemical, optical and catalytic properties were prepared and applied in the fields of biosensing, catalysis and surface science. The findings host the promises for the development of advanced hybrid materials for future applications in these and many interdisciplinary fields.
