The free orthogonal quantum groups have been introduced by Wang as "liberations" of the usual orthogonal groups. From the probabilistic and analytical point of view, their discrete duals are matricial analogues of the usual free groups. I will review some of their operator-algebraic properties and present a new result about the adjoint representation of orthogonal free quantum groups, with application to strong solidity. This is joint work with Pierre Fima.
