Cover Picture: Self-Assembly and Cross-Linking of Bionanoparticles at Liquid–Liquid Interfaces (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 16/2005)

44_16/2005Interfacial activities of the cowpea mosaic virus (CPMV) between two immiscible liquids are examined by fluorescent labeling. The cover picture shows a ribbon diagram of CPMV, fluorescence laser scanning confocal microscopy images of perfluorodecalin droplets in water encapsulated by a layer of CPMV, and the structure of a CPMV particle labeled with a fluorescent dye and biotin. In their Communication on page 2420 ff., T. P. Russell, Q. Wang, and co-workers describe the formation of robust membranes by the self-assembly of CPMV bionanoparticles at liquid–liquid interfaces.
