48_08b/2009Inside Cover: Self-Template-Directed Formation of Coordination-Polymer Hexagonal Tubes and Rings, and their Calcination to ZnO Rings (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 8/2009)

Hexagonal tubes and rings with unusual shapes were generated through a unique self-template-directed growth mechanism. As described by M. Oh and co-workers in the Communication on page 1459 ff., initially formed solid coordination polymer particles (CPPs) act as templates for the growth of the final hexagonal tubes and rings. Simple calcination of these unusually shaped CPPs results in the spontaneous formation of ZnO particles while the unique shape is maintained.
