Cover Picture: Liquid Crystalline Peptide Nanowires (Adv. Mater. 22/2007)
Liquid-crystalline peptide nanowires consisting of aromatic dipeptides are easily prepared by a sonication in a volatile organic solvent, report Hyotcherl Ihee, Sang Ouk Kim, and co-workers on p. 3924. The colloidal nematic liquid crystalline phase of the rigid nanowires allows for a macroscopically ordered morphology of the nanowires under an external electric field. The cover image presents a broad field view of nanowires oriented by an electric field between two electrodes.
