7_02/2006Cover Picture: Multifunctional Carbon Nanofibers with Conductive, Magnetic and Superhydrophobic Properties (ChemPhysChem 2/2006)

The cover picture shows water droplets on a superhydrophobic surface of carbon nanofibers (CNFs) forming spheres. Inspired by self-cleaning plant leaves an interesting hybrid material, made of electrospun nanofibers, has been obtained with not only conductive and magnetic (see the hysteresis loop of the CNFs) but also superhydrophobic properties. This self-cleaning material may find application as corrosive protection or electromagnetic shielding coating. To read how Y. Zhu et al. combine conductive, magnetic and superhydrophobic properties of these CNFs, please turn to page 336.
