Cover Picture: Theory of Chiral Plasmonic Nanostructures Comprising Metal Nanocrystals and Chiral Molecular Media (ChemPhysChem 10/2012)
On p. 2551 ff., A. O. Govorov and Z. Fan present a theory of plasmonic nanocrystals interacting with chiral molecular media and show how the chirality of biomolecules can be transferred to the plasmonic resonances. This transfer effect can potentially be utilized in chiral sensors.
