Palladium Nanostructures: Synthesis and Structural Characterization of Branched Palladium Nanostructures (Adv. Mater. 22/2009)
The front cover stylizes the formation of a palladium tripod nanoparticle, an unusual morphology for a particle that crystallises in the highly symmetrical face centred cubic crystal structure. Their growth is controlled by introducing both twinning into the nanoparticle nuclei and kinetically controlled growth conditions. Richard Tilley and co-workers provide on p. 2288 insights into the formation of anisotropic noble metal nanoparticles, important for a range of applications.
