Abstract

original image

The image shows an artist's view of different types of Janus and patchy particles, with different capping molecules, compositions, or morphologies at different parts of the particles. The partially immersed particles exemplify the preparation methods based on partial surface modification. A summary of the state of the art in the formation, properties, and applications of Janus and patchy particles containing a metallic component is presented by Denis Rodríguez-Fernández and Luis M. Liz-Marzán on page 46.
