Fabrication of Metal-Nanoparticle-Modified Semiconducting Copper– and Silver–TCNQ Materials as Substrates for the Reduction of Chromium(VI) Using Thiosulfate Ions at Ambient Temperature


  • TCNQ=7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane


Invited for this month’s cover is the group of Dr. Anthony P. O′Mullane from RMIT University in Melbourne. The cover picture shows a SEM image of a semiconducting CuTCNQ microrod whose surface is decorated with metal nanoparticles by a simple galvanic replacement process.
