This perspective focuses on the catalytic uses of imidazolium derivatives grafted on to silicas, including metal catalysts (complexes and nanoparticles) and metal-free ones. It is intended to help in inspiring future developments and interest in the growing field of catalysis by supported imidazolium salts and NHC (N-heterocyclic carbenes) complexes based on organosilicas.
