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

Kinetics, thermodynamics, and mechanisms of catalysis by metal ions in the gas phase can be uncovered by mass spectrometry. D. K. Böhme and H. Schwarz report on this in their Review on page 2336 ff.
In their Communication on page 2356 ff., D. Cappelletti and co-workers describe theoretical calculations as well as molecular-beam-scattering experiments on the interaction of water with noble-gas molecules.
In the Minireview on page 2328 ff., C. Bruneau discusses recent developments in the electrophilic activation of enynes catalyzed by gold, platinum, and ruthenium derivatives to produce fused cyclopropane derivatives.
