53_05c/2014Inside Back Cover: Patternable Large-Scale Molybdenium Disulfide Atomic Layers Grown by Gold-Assisted Chemical Vapor Deposition (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 5/2014)

Patternable growth of large-scale MoS2 atomic layers is presented by H. C. Choi et al. in their Communication on page 1266 ff. The picture shows the analogy between the growth of MoS2 and a moth. Losing CO ligands, Mo atoms roam like a caterpillar. They soon form a surface alloy, hiding from the outside like in a cocoon. Upon exposure to H2S, they then come to the surface, as does a moth.
