Cover Picture: Continuous Multistep Microfluidic Assisted Assembly of Fluorescent, Plasmonic, and Magnetic Nanostructures (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 7/2013)
Assembly of different nanostructures occurs with perfection in nature (such as in trees) under laminar flows because these flows are symmetrical and continuous. In their Communication on page 1994 ff., A. Abou-Hassan and co-workers use laminar flow microreactors for the self-assembly of fluorescent, plasmonic, and magnetic nanoparticles for the preparation of different categories of assemblies with dual or triple functionalities.
