52_25b/2013Back Cover: Bottom-Up Formation of Dodecane-in-Water Nanoemulsions from Hydrothermal Homogeneous Solutions (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 25/2013)

In the deep oceans at tectonically active areas, hot and compressed water, sometimes in the supercritical state, gushes out from the sea floor. The water is rapidly cooled to near-freezing temperature by surrounding cold water. Such a unique environment in the deep ocean inspired S. Deguchi and N. Ifuku to develop a novel bottom-up emulsification process, described in their Communication on page 6409 ff. The photograph (© JAMSTEC) shows a hydrothermal activity at the depth of 1492 m near Ryukyu Islands, Japan.
