    1. Cover Picture: Microspheres with Tunable Refractive Index by Controlled Assembly of Nanoparticles(Adv. Mater. 17/2008)

      Shin-Hyun Kim, Young-Sang Cho, Seog-Jin Jeon, Tai Hee Eun, Gi-Ra Yi and Seung-Man Yang

      Article first published online: 1 SEP 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200890069

      The cover presents a novel method for synthesizing microspheres with tunable refractive index by controlled assembly of multicomponent nanoparticles. The backdrop comprises highly monodisperse water-in-oil emulsion droplets in which nanoparticles such as silica, titania, and gold are encapsulated and dispersed finely. Subsequently, as water is removed from the emulsion droplets by evaporation, the encapsulated nanoparticles spontaneously assemble into microspheres of all equal size, as schematically illustrated on the cover. In their Communication on p. 3268, Seung-Man Yang and co-workers create composite microspheres by using colloidal mixture suspensions of different materials. This is technologically important because the functional properties such as refractive index can be tuned by changing the components and their mixing ratio.

    1. Inside Front Cover: Detection of CuII by a Chemodosimeter-Functionalized Monolayer on Mesoporous Silica (Adv. Mater. 17/2008)

      Hyun Jung Kim, Soo Jin Lee, Sun Young Park, Jong Hwa Jung and Jong Seung Kim

      Article first published online: 1 SEP 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200890070

      The inside cover shows the Cu(II)-induced cyclic guanylation of thiourea anthraquinone, exhibiting highly exclusive selectivity towards Cu(II) over other competitive cations in fluorometric and colorimetric chemodosimetry. Jong Seung Kim, Jong Hwa Jung, and coworkers report on p. 3229 that addition of Cu2+ ion to solutions of MSIA (mesoporous silica-immobilized anthraquinone) gives an instantaneous color change along with a blue-shifted absorption band within a 1:1 stoichiometric reaction at room temperature. The selectivity of this system is potentially useful for monitoring of Cu2+ ions.

      San-Hui Chi, Joel M. Hales, Canek Fuentes-Hernandez, Shuo-Yen Tseng, Jian-Yang Cho, Susan A. Odom, Qing Zhang, Stephen Barlow, Richard R. Schrock, Seth R. Marder, Bernard Kippelen and Joseph W. Perry

      Article first published online: 15 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200800664

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Ring-opening metathesis polymerization of mono-substituted cyclooctatetraenes is used to form optical-quality films of polyacetylenes with large χ(3) of up to 2.1 × 10−10 esu in the near-infrared (1300–1550 nm). Thick films of such materials provide large diffraction efficiencies in ultrafast image-correlation applications.

    2. Self-Folding of Charged Single Dendronized Polymers (pages 3204–3210)

      Wei Zhuang, Edis Kasëmi, Yi Ding, Martin Kröger, A. Dieter Schlüter and Jürgen P. Rabe

      Article first published online: 17 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200800168

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Back-folding of a single dendronized polymer on itself upon charging is shown in the Figure. This duplex formation is a step on the way to create more complex, still ordered supramolecular structures based on polyelectrolytes.

    3. Patterned Colloidal Photonic Domes and Balls Derived from Viscous Photocurable Suspensions (pages 3211–3217)

      Shin-Hyun Kim, Jong-Min Lim, Woong Chan Jeong, Dae-Geun Choi and Seung-Man Yang

      Article first published online: 15 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200800782

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Pixelated patterns of photonic hemispheres are prepared by self-organization of silica particles in photocurable hemispherical droplets. Especially, RGB-color patterns with high coverage are fabricated by spotting 3× without coalescence and multicolored hemispheres are prepared by controlled coalescence. In addition, monodisperse photonic balls are prepared through the evolution of wettability of the suspension droplets.

    4. Control of Rapid Formation of Interchain Excited States in Sugar-Threaded Supramolecular Wires (pages 3218–3223)

      Annamaria Petrozza, Sergio Brovelli, Jasper J. Michels, Harry L. Anderson, Richard H. Friend, Carlos Silva and Franco Cacialli

      Article first published online: 14 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200800007

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The time-resolved photoluminescence of cyclodextrin-threaded conjugated molecular wires and their unthreaded analogues is studied to probe suppression of intermolecular interactions by supramolecular encapsulation. The polyrotaxane dynamics are exponential and independent of concentration, different from those of unthreaded semiconductors, which display instead optical signatures of interchain species. This is fundamental insight into the photophysics of semiconducting polymers, and crucial for the development of organic electronics.

    5. Towards Flexible Magnetoelectronics: Buffer-Enhanced and Mechanically Tunable GMR of Co/Cu Multilayers on Plastic Substrates (pages 3224–3228)

      Yuan-fu Chen, Yongfeng Mei, Rainer Kaltofen, Jens Ingolf Mönch, Joachim Schumann, Jens Freudenberger, Hans-Jörg Klauß and Oliver G. Schmidt

      Article first published online: 14 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200800230

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Strongly enhanced GMR on flexible substrates is reported for (Co_1 nm/Cu_1 nm)N multilayers deposited on plastics (P) by introducing a photoresist (PR) buffer layer. GMR values of Co/Cu multilayers on buffered flexible substrates are even larger than those on thermally oxidized Si (Si) substrates due to an increased antiferromagnetic coupling fraction. The GMR effect can be easily tuned mechanically by substrate stretching.

    6. Detection of CuII by a Chemodosimeter-Functionalized Monolayer on Mesoporous Silica (pages 3229–3234)

      Hyun Jung Kim, Soo Jin Lee, Sun Young Park, Jong Hwa Jung and Jong Seung Kim

      Article first published online: 23 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200800246

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The first CuII-induced cyclic guanylation of thiourea anthraquinone (1), exhibiting high selectivity towards CuII over other competitive cations in aspects of fluorometric and colorimetric chemodosimetry, is reported. Moreover, mesoporous silica-immobilized anthraquinone (MSIA) is also fabricated and shows Cu2+ ion selectivity with respect to a color change from red to yellow.

    7. Facile Synthesis of New Full-Color-Emitting BCNO Phosphors with High Quantum Efficiency (pages 3235–3238)

      Takashi Ogi, Yutaka Kaihatsu, Ferry Iskandar, Wei-Ning Wang and Kikuo Okuyama

      Article first published online: 14 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200702551

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A novel full-color-emitting phosphor composed of B, C, N, and O atoms is prepared by a one-step solution process from inexpensive precursors at ambient atmosphere and relatively low temperatures (below 900 °C). Emission from this novel phosphor can be tuned from the violet to the near-red, as illustrated in the figure, simply by varying the carbon content in the samples.

    8. Colloid Surfactants for Emulsion Stabilization (pages 3239–3243)

      Jin-Woong Kim, Daeyeon Lee, Ho Cheung Shum and David A. Weitz

      Article first published online: 17 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200800484

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Colloid surfactants are fabricated with precisely controlled geometry and used for emulsion stabilization. These amphiphilic dimer particles (left) combine the benefits of emulsion stabilization of particles and the amphiphilicity of molecular surfactants to afford better emulsion stabilization. Remarkably, these colloidal surfactants stabilize not only spherical emulsion droplets but also nonspherical ones (right).

    9. Polarization Engineering of Thermal Radiation Using Metallic Photonic Crystals (pages 3244–3247)

      Jae-Hwang Lee, Jeffrey Chi Wai Lee, Wai Leung, Ming Li, Kristen Constant, Che Ting Chan and Kai-Ming Ho

      Article first published online: 12 AUG 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200703160

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Polarization engineering in thermal radiation is demonstrated by use of metallic photonic crystals, which enhance thermal radiation at specific frequencies with a high degree of polarization up to 0.5. The strong absorption induced by greatly reduced group velocity for a certain polarization is the underlying physical reason for this phenomenon.

    10. Direct Growth of Highly Mismatched Type II ZnO/ZnSe Core/Shell Nanowire Arrays on Transparent Conducting Oxide Substrates for Solar Cell Applications (pages 3248–3253)

      Kai Wang, Jiajun Chen, Weilie Zhou, Yong Zhang, Yanfa Yan, John Pern and Angelo Mascarenhas

      Article first published online: 14 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200800145

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Large-area, well-aligned ZnO/ZnSe core/shell nanowire arrays are synthesized directly on a transparent conducting oxide substrate. HRTEM reveals that ZnO and ZnSe have wurtzite and zinc blend crystal structures, respectively (see figure), the interface is smooth with no transitional layer, and ZnSe grows epitaxially on the ZnO core.

    11. Grain-Boundary Evolution in a Pentacene Monolayer (pages 3254–3257)

      Jian Zhang, Jürgen P. Rabe and Norbert Koch

      Article first published online: 14 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200703066

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Grain boundaries within single pentacene topographical islands on SiO2 are directly observed (see figure), and these intraisland grain boundaries form at very early stages of pentacene film growth (starting at ca. 0.05 monolayer). Consequently, charge-carrier mobility values from studies on single topographical islands may still include contributions from grain boundaries.

    12. A Doping-Free Carbon Nanotube CMOS Inverter-Based Bipolar Diode and Ambipolar Transistor (pages 3258–3262)

      Sheng Wang, Zhiyong Zhang, Li Ding, Xuelei Liang, Jun Shen, Huilong Xu, Qing Chen, RongLi Cui, Yan Li and Lian-Mao Peng

      Article first published online: 14 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200703210

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A barrier-free bipolar diode (BFBD) and an ambipolar field-effect transistor (FET) are fabricated based on a doping-free carbon nanotube (CNT) CMOS inverter. The basic CNT device unit consists of two Pd and two Sc electrodes deposited side-by-side on a single CNT, and can be used as an n-FET, p-FET, CMOS inverter, and high-performance ambipolar FET and BFBD in which both electrons and holes contribute effectively to the forward current.

    13. Label-Free Colorimetric Detection of Lead Ions with a Nanomolar Detection Limit and Tunable Dynamic Range by using Gold Nanoparticles and DNAzyme (pages 3263–3267)

      Zidong Wang, Jung Heon Lee and Yi Lu

      Article first published online: 14 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200703181

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      In the presence of Pb2+, a cleaved enzyme–substrate complex releases ssDNA that adsorbs onto and stabilizes gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) against salt-induced aggregation. In the absence of Pb2+, the uncleaved complex can not stabilize the AuNPs, resulting in purple–blue AuNP aggregates (see figure). The sensor has a low detection limit of 3 nM, a high selectivity, and a tunable dynamic range.

    14. Microspheres with Tunable Refractive Index by Controlled Assembly of Nanoparticles (pages 3268–3273)

      Shin-Hyun Kim, Young-Sang Cho, Seog-Jin Jeon, Tai Hee Eun, Gi-Ra Yi and Seung-Man Yang

      Article first published online: 19 JUN 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200702622

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Microspheres with tunable functional properties are prepared by controlled aggregation of nanoparticles in emulsion droplets. In particular, complex rutile-phase morphologies are obtained by heat treatment of anatase titania aggregates. The refractive index of the microspheres can be modulated by using mixtures of silica and titania suspensions. In addition, dye doping is achieved by simply adding dye molecules into the titania suspension.

    15. Bioenabled Surface-Mediated Growth of Titania Nanoparticles (pages 3274–3279)

      Eugenia Kharlampieva, Taisia Tsukruk, Joseph M. Slocik, Hyunhyub Ko, Nicole Poulsen, Rajesh R. Naik, Nils Kröger and Vladimir V. Tsukruk

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A recombinant protein, silaffin rSilC, adsorbed on a tailored polyelectrolyte surface is capable of initiating the nucleation and growth of 4 nm titania nanoparticles in a dispersed manner under ambient conditions. The approach presented here may be readily applicable to other organic and inorganic materials to enable a robust synthesis of uniform organic–inorganic nanostructures with controllable dimensions and surface distributions.

      Article first published online: 23 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200702149

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Graphene nanoribbons are formed from ultrathin electrospun poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) nanofibers by electron beam irradiation. The number and width of the graphene sheets can be controlled precisely (see figure), providing a novel method of obtaining designed graphenes. This graphitization technique could be combined with electron beam lithography in the future to obtain high-resolution patterned graphite circuits.

    18. Patterned Graphene as Source/Drain Electrodes for Bottom-Contact Organic Field-Effect Transistors (pages 3289–3293)

      Chong-an Di, Dacheng Wei, Gui Yu, Yunqi Liu, Yunlong Guo and Daoben Zhu

      Article first published online: 14 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200800150

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Graphene, which is a basic building block of graphite, fullerene, and carbon nanotubes, is patterned effectively by a simple approach involving vapor deposition on Cu or Ag electrodes that were patterned on a highly n-doped silicon wafer with a thermally oxidized SiO2 dielectric layer (see figure). The patterned graphene could serve as excellent bottom-contact electrodes for high-performance organic field-effect transistors.

      Tetrapod-like ZnS1−xSex alloy nanostructures (T-ZnS1−xSex) of different compositions (0 ≤ x ≤ 1) are synthesized by chemical vapor deposition. Their composition-dependent Raman scattering and cathodoluminescence are studied. The single-crystal T-ZnS1−xSex nanostructures exhibit strong and narrow near-band-edge emissions that can be continuously tuned from 330–459 nm (see figure).

    20. How Electrode Work Function Affects Doping and Electroluminescence of Polymer Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cells (pages 3298–3302)

      Donna Hohertz and Jun Gao

      Article first published online: 14 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200800068

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The electrode composition strongly affects nearly every aspect of light-emitting electrochemical cell (LEC) operation. The electrode effect is explained in terms of the difference in electrode work function, which determines the efficiency of electronic charge injection at low doping levels. The results suggest that both the active layer and the electrodes should be considered and optimized in order to realize high-performance LECs.

    21. X-Ray Induced Synthesis of 8H Diamond (pages 3303–3307)

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Functionalized, thiol-ene nanopatterned materials are fabricated using step and flash imprint lithography (SFIL) and are readily modified with a micropatterned, secondary polymer layer through the unreacted pendant thiols on the surface. Thiol-enes offer versatile chemistry, rapid curing and excellent control over polymer properties using stoichiometry and functionality for both base substrate and attached secondary polymer layer.

    23. Controllable Microfluidic Production of Microbubbles in Water-in-Oil Emulsions and the Formation of Porous Microparticles (pages 3314–3318)

      Jiandi Wan, Alexander Bick, Matthew Sullivan and Howard A. Stone

      Article first published online: 14 JUL 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.200800628

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Water-encapsulated microbubbles (gas-in-water-in-oil) are fabricated using two different microfluidic approaches. By adjusting the flow rate ratio of water to oil the number of encapsulated microbubbles in micrometer-size water droplets and the thickness of the water layer can be controlled. Adding photopolymerizable monomers into the water phase permits polymerization of the aqueous droplets encapsulating the microbubbles yielding porous polymer microparticles.

      Tetrafluoro-tetracyano-quinodimethane (F4TCNQ) is used to p-dope conjugated polymers with a wide range of the HOMO levels via co-blending in a common organic solvent. Doping results in several orders of magnitude increase in the bulk conductivity and hole-current with reduced turn-on voltage. The effectiveness of doping increases as the HOMO level of the polymer becomes smaller.

    25. Controlling the Radiative Rate of Deep-Blue Electrophosphorescent Organometallic Complexes by Singlet-Triplet Gap Engineering (pages 3325–3330)

      Stephan Haneder, Enrico Da Como, Jochen Feldmann, John M. Lupton, Christian Lennartz, Peter Erk, Evelyn Fuchs, Oliver Molt, Ingo Münster, Christian Schildknecht and Gerhard Wagenblast

      Colloidal vinyl polymer-silica nanocomposite particles are synthesized with very high silica aggregation efficiencies via aqueous emulsion using a cationic azo initiator in the presence of a glycerol-functionalized ultrafine aqueous silica sol as the sole stabilizing agent (see scheme). The protocol is surfactant-free and requires neither auxiliary comonomer nor nonaqueous co-solvent. The particles are film-forming at ambient temperature, yielding highly transparent films containing up to 39% silica by mass.

    27. Preparation of a Superhydrophobic and Conductive Nanocomposite Coating from a Carbon-Nanotube-Conjugated Block Copolymer Dispersion (pages 3337–3341)

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Nanostructured parallelly oriented TiO2 micropillar arrays, either pure or implanted on a carbon matrix, are prepared via controlled oxidation of hybrid carbonaceous systems. Mild oxidation at 500 °C (O2 1%) leads to formation of parallelly oriented elongated TiO2 pillars, which emerge from a compact α-C phase (TiO2/C composite). Under strong oxidation conditions (O2 10%) formation of pure TiO2 pillar arrays is observed. The pillars constituted of partially cemented anatase or anatase/rutile nanoparticles.

      Molecular glasses, used as photoresists, possess several desirable features in comparison with polymeric photoresists. In the ongoing pursuit of higher-resolution patterning methods these attributes are important. As a result, molecular glasses (see figure) are expected to enable greater resolution (a few tens of nanometers), more uniform and lower-defect image formation, and more environmentally friendly development than possible today.
