      X-ray absorption fine structure experiments reveal the interaction between iron nanoparticles synthesized with both 2,4-pentanedione and hexaethylene glycol monododecylether ligands, and are presented by Todd Monson and co-workers on page 258. Oxidized species of iron exist at the nanoparticles' surface and can be attributed to iron/ligand interactions. These oxidized species can play a significant role in the nanoparticles' magnetic properties.

      Nanomaterials: The Morphology Evolution of Nickel Phosphite Hexagonal Polyhedrons and Their Primary Electrochemical Capacitor Applications (Part. Part. Syst. Charact. 3/2013) (page 206)

      Nickel Phosphite Hexagonal Polyhedrons are firstly synthesized by Huan Pang, Jing Chen and co-workers on page 287. The single microcrystal Ni11(HPO3)8(OH)6 hexagonal polyhedron is successfully primarily applied as electrochemical supercapacitor electrode materials, which has a good specific capacitance, good rate capability and cycling property. It is a good example to prove that the precise control of morphology of nanomaterials will serve for controlling the performance.

      Sungwook Chung, Donovan N. Leonard, Virginia Altoe, Shaul Aloni, James J. De Yoreo and Stefan Franzen

      The image shows hexagonal Pd nanocrystals formed from hexagonal Pd2(dba)3 microcrystals. As-grown hexagonal platelets formed from a Pd2(dba)3 precursor are shown to be disordered microcrystals containing 1–2 nm Pd clusters, which grow and transform into Pd nanocrystals under an electron beam or through thermal annealing. In-depth investigation of the crystal structure and transformation process are presented by James J. De Yoreo, Stefan Franzen and co-workers on page 280.

    1. Polymeric-Micelle-Based Nanomedicine for siRNA Delivery (pages 211–228)

      Version of Record online: 22 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.201200061

      Small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) are a rapidly emerging class of innovative medicines. However, siRNA delivery is the biggest challenge for their clinical application. The barriers impeding siRNA delivery, the different polymeric micelles of siRNA developed to date, their gene silencing or therapeutic activity, and advanced applications for the co-delivery of drugs and siRNA by these delivery systems are reviewed.

    1. Continuous Hydrothermal Synthesis of In Situ Functionalized Iron Oxide Nanoparticles: A General Strategy to Produce Metal Oxide Nanoparticles With Clickable Anchors (pages 229–234)

      Maren Daschner de Tercero, Michael Bruns, Isai González Martínez, Michael Türk, Ulrich Fehrenbacher, Stefan Jennewein and Leonie Barner

      Version of Record online: 7 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.201200109

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The successful synthesis of in situ functionalized iron oxide nanoparticles with alkyne functional groups is presented. The method uses a continuous process in which a cold aqueous metal salt stream is mixed with bifunctional organic molecules and near-critical or supercritical water (nc-H2O/sc-H2O). The resulting particles can be fitted with a wide range of molecules via click reactions.

    2. Assembly of Carbon Nanotubes on Polymer Particles: Towards Rapid Shape Change by Near-Infrared Light (pages 235–240)

      Xiaopeng Huang, Qiuping Qian, Xinyue Zhang, Wenbin Du, Huaping Xu and Yapei Wang

      Version of Record online: 5 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.201200130

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A hybrid system with a carbon nanotube coating on the shell of the polymeric particle is constructed via a Pickering emulsion route. Thermal generation from carbon nanotubes under near-infrared illumination actuates the phase transition of the polymer matrix, rapidly triggering particle shape change. It is envisioned that the shape change by near-IR light, combined with the ease of particle fabrication, opens an avenue to exploit smart drug vehicles.

    3. Evolution of Atomically Precise Silver Clusters to Superlattice Crystals (pages 241–243)

      Version of Record online: 7 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.201200102

      The systematic size evolution of organic-soluble, atomically precise silver clusters (product 1) to superlattices (SLs) is reported. Creation of nanoparticle crystals starting from atomically precise clusters points to the synthesis of materials with tunable propertiesOk.

    1. Mean Particle Diameters. Part VII. The Rosin-Rammler Size Distribution: Physical and Mathematical Properties and Relationships to Moment-Ratio Defined Mean Particle Diameters (pages 244–257)

      Maarten Alderliesten

      Version of Record online: 5 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.201200021

      The physical meaning of the Rosin-Rammler (R-R) location parameter depends on the value of its spread parameter, making it physically uninterpretable and less suitable in physical models. The R-R distribution can still be used for production control, but a mean particle diameter (Moment-Ratio system) instead of the location parameter is recommended. R-R distributions with spread parameter values ≤3 cannot exist. Painter: Christoph Wetzel, Photo: TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany (photo edited by Annelies ter Laare).

    2. Implication of Ligand Choice on Surface Properties, Crystal Structure, and Magnetic Properties of Iron Nanoparticles (pages 258–265)

    3. Synthesis of Fluorinated Graphene Oxide and its Amphiphobic Properties (pages 266–272)

      Version of Record online: 7 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.201200091

      A one-pot methodology to covalently functionalize the basal plane of graphene oxide (GO) with varying abundance of tertiary alkyl fluoride enables tailoring its wetting characteristics from innately superhydrophilic to superamphiphobic. Outstanding solution processability permits the fabrication of "inks" that are sprayed on several porous/non-porous substrates to impart amphiphobicity.

    4. An Improved Method for Site-Specific End Modification of Zeolite L for the Formation of Zeolite L and Gold Nanoparticle Self-Assembled Structures (pages 273–279)

      John M. Beierle, Robby Roswanda, Petra M. Erne, Anthony C. Coleman, Wesley R. Browne and Ben L. Feringa

      Version of Record online: 22 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.201200077

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The mechanism for site-specific modification of zeolite L is clarified with the development of novel silyl reagents that show enhanced specificity and stability. Site-specific self-assembly of gold nanoparticles onto functionalized zeolites through adamantane and β-cyclodextrin host-guest interactions demonstrates the utility of the new approach.

    5. The Formation of Pd Nanocrystals from Pd2(dba)3 Microcrystals (pages 280–286)

      Sungwook Chung, Donovan N. Leonard, Virginia Altoe, Shaul Aloni, James J. De Yoreo and Stefan Franzen

      Version of Record online: 7 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.201200114

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Hexagonal platelets formed from [Pd2(dba)3]:RNA precursor solutions are investigated. Crystalline platelets rapidly degrade through loss of Pd atoms from dibenzylideneacetone (dba) ligand cages. Once released, Pd atoms aggregate into Pd clusters, which grow and transform into Pd nanocrystals under electron beam or through thermal annealing. The pure RNA sequences used here appear to play no role in templating crystallization.

    6. The Morphology Evolution of Nickel Phosphite Hexagonal Polyhedrons and Their Primary Electrochemical Capacitor Applications (pages 287–295)

      Huan Pang, Zhenzhen Yan, Yuanyuan Wei, Xuexue Li, Juan Li, Li Zhang, Jing Chen, Jiangshan Zhang and Honghe Zheng

      Version of Record online: 12 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.201200147

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Nickel phosphite hexagonal polyhedrons are successfully synthesized under hydrothermal conditions. Different nano/microstructured Ni11(HPO3)8(OH)6 samples may have different surface-interface conditions, which play key roles in ions intercalated or extracted into or out and electrolyte access. Ni11(HPO3)8(OH)6 hexagonal polyhedrons can be applied as an electroactive material for supercapacitors.
