Cover Picture: Evolution of Nanocrystallinity in Periodic Mesoporous Anatase Thin Films (Small 2/2005)

1_02/2005The cover picture represents the time evolution of the transformation of glassy titania into nanocrystalline anatase nanochannel walls, originating from the point in time of the actual genesis of the embryonic seeds (the critical nuclei), to the realization of spherical nanocrystals, and eventually to elongated nanocrystal growth, which is axially guided by the director field of the nanochannels of the hexagonal mesostructure. More information can be obtained by reading the Full Paper “Evolution of Nanocrystallinity in Periodic Mesoporous Anatase Thin Films” by G. A. Ozin and co-workers on page 226 ff. The authors thank Ludovico Cademartiri for the cover design.
