It's a small world! The hydrothermal synthesis of a family of lanthanide hydroxide single-crystal nanowires has been achieved (see picture), the properties and dimensions of which can be tailored by changes in chemical potential and the pH value of the reaction media. Such materials might serve as templates for biological labeling agents, as one of many potential applications.
