Cover Picture: Controlling the Assembly of Silver Nanocubes through Selective Functionalization of Their Faces (Adv. Mater. 12/2008)
The cover shows some of the assemblies that can be generated from the self-assembly of silver nanocubes. These nanocubes have faces that have been selectively functionalized with alkanethiols in patterns that allow for their controlled assembly, as reported by Younan Xia and co-workers on p. 2416. Self-assembly occurs in water from the collective hydrophobic interactions of the functionalized nanocubes.
