53_23i/2014Inside Cover: A Synergistic Capture Strategy for Enhanced Detection and Elimination of Bacteria (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 23/2014)

Efficient bacterial capture was achieved through a method based on the synergistic effect of surface nanotopography and surface chemistry on bacterial attachment. In their Communication on page 5837 ff., X. Chen and co-workers show that packed silicon nanowires functionalized with bacteria-binding molecules show enhanced capture efficiency compared to surface-modified flat silicon and enable highly sensitive detection and efficient elimination of bacterial pathogens.
