Abstract

original image

The cover picture shows a selection of electron microscopy images of samples synthesized by using flame aerosol synthesis and photographs of flame reactors. In their Review on p. 1234 ff., Baiker et al. reveal that by using these flame reactors, and other related techniques, a large variety of mixed metal oxide and supported noble metal catalysts can be produced, which display significantly different characteristics from their wet-chemistry derived counterparts and present unprecedented structural and catalytic properties.
