Cover Picture: Actinyl Peroxide Nanospheres (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 14/2005)

44_14/2005Structurally tuneable spheroids offer the opportunity to systematically probe electronic, magnetic, and catalytic properties on the nanoscale. In their Communication on page 2135 ff., P. C. Burns et al. describe the self-assembly of nanospheres based on actinyl ions. Furthermore, they report how these nanospheres could form in nuclear waste and so have an impact on the mobility of actinides in the environment. The cover picture shows a polyhedral representation of a spherical actinyl peroxide nanocluster.
