      European cooperation: The COST 500 series (pages 217–221)

      Dr. Tom B. Gibbons

      Article first published online: 29 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020502

      Many areas of metallurgy and engineering have benefited through European cooperations set up under the Cooperation in Scientific and Technical Research (COST) program. Those sections of the program of relevance to materials scientists which include aspects of power engineering, corrosion, powder engineering, corrosion, powder metallurgy, rapid solidification and alloyus, are described and reviewed.

    1. Langmuir–blodgett films for electronic applications (pages 222–231)

      Dr. Bernd Tieke

      Article first published online: 29 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020504

      LB Films with electroactive properties (e.g. see figure) such as electrical conduction, redox activity, electrochromism, nonlinear optical, or pyroelectric activity can be applied, for example, in chemisensors, frequency converters, optical switches, waveguides, and infrared-sensors. Methods for the production of the films, their chemical compositions, and their applications are reviewed.

    2. High-temperature superconductivity: Four years since Bednorz end Müller (pages 232–253)

      Dr. Paul M. Grant

      Article first published online: 29 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020505

      The history, development, theory, experiment and applications of high-Tc superconducting materials are covered in depth by one of the leading figures in the area. The importance of patents to the inductrial effort is analyzed and the possible mechanisms responsible for the phenomenon described.

    1. Molecular recognition directed self-assembly of supramolecular liquid crystalline polymers from complementary chiral components (pages 254–257)

      Dr. Claudine Fouquey, Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn and Anne-Marie Levelut

      Article first published online: 29 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020506

      The self-assembly of intelligent supermolecular materials, for example, liquid crystalline polymers, is the subject of this communication. Employing units based on tartaric acid in the molecular recognition process (see figure) allows the effects of chirality to be investigated as the recognition which occurs at a molecular level is reflected in the properties of the macroscopic mesophases formed.

    2. Crystal synthesis under langmuir monolayers (pages 257–261)

      Dr. Stephen Mann, Dr. Brigid R. Heywood, Sundara Rajam, Justin B. A. Walker, Dr. Roger J. Davey and J. Derek Birchall

      Article first published online: 29 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020507

      Organized organic surfaces can have a pronounced influence on the controlled crystallization of calcium carbonate. The effect is based on an inorganic-organic molecular recognition process which is important, for example, in biomineralization. The contributions of headgroup charge and ionic concentration are examined. One of the two types of vaterite (the less common polymorph of calcium carbonate) crystals grown are shown in the figure.

    1. Surface analysis III. Planar array of atomic scale tunneling diodes (pages 262–263)

      Dr. Jürgen P. Rabe

      Article first published online: 29 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020508

      Surface Analysis III: The recent demonstration of the tunneldiode effect on an atomic scale forms the basis of this article which also looks at the overall trends towards miniaturazation of devices down to the atomic scale. The latest achievement is based on the ability of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) to image regions of negative differential conductivity on the surface of boron doped silicon.

    2. Solar induced hydrogen production in a semiconductor septum electrochemical photovoltaic cell (pages 263–266)

      H. Ti Tien

      Article first published online: 29 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020509

      Seawater + visible light [RIGHTWARDS ARROW] electricity and hydrogen. This is the reaction which occurs in a solar cell recently developed by a group at the Michigan State University, based on an n-type polycrystalline cadmium selenide (CdSe) electrode (see figure). The work is based on experience gained in research into membranes for artificial photosynthesis.

      Dr. Franz Faupel

      Article first published online: 29 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020510

      A radiotracer technique has recently been employed to investigate the migration of Cu and Ag atoms in polyimides, an important process in the electronics industry where composite structures are becoming ever smaller and interfacial chemistry ever more important.
