Organic Single Crystals: Azeotropic Binary Solvent Mixtures for Preparation of Organic Single Crystals (Adv. Funct. Mater. 22/2009)
The inside cover of this issue illustrates the solution-phase self-assembly of organic single crystals by using azeotropic binary solvent mixtures, described by X. Li et al. on page 3610, and is a snap-shot taken during the self-assembly of tri-isopropylsilylethynyl pentacene single crystals from an azeotropic binary solvent mixture of isopropanol plus toluene, on a silicon substrate. These needle-like crystals were growing with time while floating in the bulk of the solution during solvent evaporation, with bright colors showing their birefringence.
