ChemPhysChem 04/2010: Finding the best strategy

High-resolution spectroscopy plays an important role in the study of the intramolecular dynamics of nonrigid molecules, but the spectra are often very complex. In a Review, M. Schnell explains how group theory can be used to understand such complex spectra. The Highlight by N. D. Browning and co-workers shows how the incorporation of electron energy loss spectroscopy with the 4D electron microscope enables the analysis of nanoscale materials. In a Concept, D. Schlettwein et al. present a strategy to realize textile-based photovoltaic cells based on the electrodeposition of porous ZnO on metallized textiles.

The Article by Y. Wang, L. Jiang and co-workers describes a fully abiotic smart single-nanopore device that rectifies ionic current in response to the temperature. N. Murase and P. Yang report on size-tunable highly luminescent silica particles impregnated with number-adjusted CdTe nanocrystals (see picture). Finally, in the Communications section, C. Nuckolls et al. present a new approach toward higher efficiency organic photovoltaic devices while F. M. Cabrerizo, P. R. Ogilby and colleagues debunk an old belief related to fluorescence quenching by oxygen.
