51_35b/2012Back Cover: Self-Assembly of Vertically Aligned Gold Nanorod Arrays on Patterned Substrates (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 35/2012)

The self-assembly of gold nanorods into standing arrays was achieved with precise placement over large areas. In their Communication on page 8732 ff., U. Bach et al. report on a nanofabrication process based on convective and capillary forces. The functionalization of the nanorods can be used to fine-tune the interparticle and particle–substrate interaction energies, leading to high hexagonal close-packed ordering.
