Abstract

original image

The cover picture shows an image of the musical alignment of a supramolecular nanofiber, composed of an anthracene derivative, while the Kobe University Symphony Orchestra was playing classical music. In their Full Paper on page 516 ff., Akihiko Tsuda and co-workers report the quick and dynamic align of these nanofibers as a response to sensing acoustic streaming flows in liquid media generated by audible sound waves. When classical music was playing, the nanofiber dynamically aligned in harmony with the music.
