22_20b/2010Nanowires: A Microfluidic Approach for the Formation of Conductive Nanowires and Hollow Hybrid Structures (Adv. Mater. 20/2010)

The inside cover shows a scanning electron microscopy image of electrically conductive hybrid nanofibers made of tetrathiafulvalene/gold produced by hydrodynamic flow focusing in a microfluidic device, as reported in work by Josep Puigmartí-Luis and co-workers on p. 2255. The hybrid nanowires produced using this method are potential candidates for nanoscale sensor applications due to their electrical conductivity and their ease of functionalization.
