Functional Gold Nanorods: Functional Gold Nanorods: Synthesis, Self-Assembly, and Sensing Applications (Adv. Mater. 36/2012)
The interior of the letters R-I-C-E on the back cover image contains a hydrophilic silicon oxide surface, whereas the background is coated with a hydrophobic film of a photoresist. Gold nanorods coated with a CTAB bilayer selectively accumulate in the hydrophilic letters when their aqueous solution is cast on the patterned substrate. The synthesis, self-assembly and sensing applications of functional gold nanorods are reviewed in detail by Eugene Zubarev and co-workers on p. 4811.
