Cover Picture: Synthesis of Polyaniline Nanotubes with a Reactive Template of Manganese Oxide (Adv. Mater. 3/2007)
Polyaniline nanotubes can be synthesized through a chemical template method. The shape and major parameters of the tubes are precisely controlled by the reactive templates of MnO2 nanowires, which also act as the oxidative initiator for polymerization. The cover image shows an example where the rectangular tubes are cloned from the cryptomelane-phase MnO2, as reported on p. 461 by Shi and co-workers.
