Hong Wang, Liyong Chen, Xiaoshuang Shen, Liangfang Zhu, Jiating He and Prof. Hongyu Chen Back Cover: Unconventional Chain-Growth Mode in the Assembly of Colloidal Gold Nanoparticles (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 32/2012) Angewandte Chemie International Edition 51
The “chain-growth polymerization” of gold nanoparticles involves their initial encapsulation by polystyrene-block-poly(acrylic acid) and the self-assembly of the resulting “monomers” into long chains of up to 300 nanoparticles. In their Communication on page 8021 ff., H. Chen et al. state that the nanoparticle assembly is highly selective and gives chains with uniform width and interparticle spacing. The background of the picture shows the skyline of Singapore.
