Assymetric Nano-objects: True Bulk Synthesis of Janus Objects by Bipolar Electrochemistry (Adv. Mater. 37/2012)
Janus particles are synthesized in a straightforward way based on a bulk phase reaction. As reported by Alexander Kuhn and co-workers on page 5111, the developed method leads to selective modification of one side of conducting micro- and nano-objects with a well-defined metal or metal halide layer. The described reactor allows scaling-up the production of such asymmetric particles, which are of interest for a wide variety of potential applications, ranging from electronic paper to catalysis.
