    A series of supported gold–ruthenium bimetallic catalysts of varying Au:Ru molar ratios are prepared onto ceria–zirconium mixed oxide (Ce0.62Zr0.38O2). A combination of macroscopic and nanometric-scale techniques based on scanning transmission electron microscopy are used to characterize their structural and chemical features and the resistance against sintering. Catalytic behavior is tested in the selective oxidation of octanol.

    Magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles contained in a shell of mesoporous silica provide a means for magnetic imaging and pH-sensitive drug delivery. On page 242 Y.-S. Cho, H. S. Shin, T.-J. Yoon and co-workers describe successful stabilization of such a theranostic system in liposomes that are anchored to cancer-specific antibodies. Cancer therapy will profit from this highly selective system that offers imaging-guided drug delivery.
