49_11/2010Cover Picture: Dynamers at the Solid–Liquid Interface: Controlling the Reversible Assembly/Reassembly Process between Two Highly Ordered Supramolecular Guanine Motifs (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 11/2010)

Dynamers in action can be observed with responsive supramolecular architectures on surfaces. In their Communication on page 1963 ff., G. P. Spada, P. Samorì, and co-workers report how scanning tunneling microscopy was used to achieve submolecular-scale visualization of the metal-templated reversible assembly/reassembly process of N9-alkylguanine monolayers. Changes in pH switch the resulting structures from highly ordered quartets to ribbons.

Peptides in Nanostructure Synthesisfor001

Peptides are ideal agents to direct the formation and aggregation of inorganic nanostructures because of their molecular recognition and self-assembly capabilities. The current status of the research is summarized by N. L. Rosi and C.-L. Chen in their Review on page 1924 ff.

Surface Chemistryfor002

The theoretical modeling of the first activation stages of a Cu complex on top of a heated surface is reported by G. Tabacchi and co-workers in their Communication on page 1944 ff. Both slow diffusion and a fast motion were shown to occur during the activation.

A π-nucleophilic boron atom, which is a rare example in the chemistry of boryl anions, is a characteristic feature of the boracycles described by H. Braunschweig et al. in their Communication on page 2041 ff.
