51_19/2012Cover Picture: Liquid-Phase Deposition of Freestanding Copper Foils and Supported Copper Thin Films and Their Structuring into Conducting Line Patterns (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 19/2012)

The liquid-phase preparation of copper, either as freestanding submicrometer-thin foil or supported on a substrate, is presented by M. Niederberger et al. in their Communication on page 4743 ff. A solution of copper acetylacetonate initially forms a mirror on the reaction container wall, which then delaminates. When the copper is supported on a flexible substrate, such as Kapton, it can be structured into conduction line patterns.
