Cover Picture: Conducting and Superhydrophobic Rambutan-like Hollow Spheres of Polyaniline (Adv. Mater. 16/2007)
Conductive and superhydrophobic rambutan-like hollow spheres of polyaniline are formed through self-assembly by using perfluorooctane sulfonic acid as a dopant, soft template, and superhydrophobic agent at the same time, as reported by Meixiang Wan and Lei Jiang on p. 2092. The results show that the approach used is not only simple, but also that the hollow spheres have a large specific area and exhibit physical properties that are required for many applications in nanotechnology.
