  1. Amphiphilic Janus Gold Nanoparticles Prepared by Interface-Directed Self-Assembly: Synthesis and Self-Assembly

    Guannan Liu, Dr. Jia Tian, Dr. Xu Zhang and Prof. Hanying Zhao

    Article first published online: 8 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402379

    Two-faced: Polystyrene colloidal particles with gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) on the surfaces were prepared by self-assembly of AuNPs. The colloidal particles were used as templates for the synthesis of Janus AuNPs. After surface-initiated atom-transfer radical polymerization (ATRP; see picture), Janus AuNPs with two different polymer brushes on two hemispheres were obtained.

  2. Controllable Synthesis of Wurtzite Cu2ZnSnS4 Nanocrystals by Hot-Injection Approach and Growth Mechanism Studies

    Dr. Qun Luo, Yongquan Zeng, Liwei Chen and Prof. Changqi Ma

    Article first published online: 8 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402152

    How does your wurtzite-CZTS grow? The crystal growth mechanism of wurtzite Cu2ZnSnS4 (WZ-CZTS) has been investigated by using time-dependent XRD patterns, TEM images, and absorption spectra analysis. The formation process of WZ-CZTS nanocrystals involves four steps: reduction of Cu2+ to element Cu, nucleation of Cu7S4, nucleation and growth of WZ-CZTS on the basal planes of Cu7S4, and phase transformation from Cu7S4 to WZ-CZTS over about 5 min.

  3. Combining the Best of Two Worlds: Nanoparticles and Nanofibers

    Dr. Markus Bannwarth and Dr. Daniel Crespy

    Article first published online: 8 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402316

    Putting a modern electrospin on it: Nanoparticles and nanofibers can be combined advantageously by supraparticular assembly driven by electric/magnetic forces or by colloid-electrospining. In this review, the corresponding methods and their advantages as well as drawbacks are discussed.

  4. Bimetallic NiCo Functional Graphene: An Efficient Catalyst for Hydrogen-Storage Properties of MgH2

    Ying Wang, Guang Liu, Cuihua An, Li Li, Fangyuan Qiu, Prof. Yijing Wang, Lifang Jiao and Prof. Huatang Yuan

    Article first published online: 8 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402245

    Two in one: Bimetallic NiCo functional reduced graphene oxide (rGO) was synthesized by a one-pot method. Experimental results demonstrate that NiCo nanoparticles (NPs) and rGO have synergetic effects on the hydrogen-storage properties of MgH2 (see figure). The as-synthesized NiCo/rGO hybrids can effectively decrease the operating temperature and improve the sorption kinetics of MgH2.

  5. New Trifluoromethylated Derivatives of Metal Nitride Clusterfullerenes: Sc3N@Ih-C80(CF3)14 and Sc3N@D5h-C80(CF3)16

    Tao Wei, Dr. Nadezhda B. Tamm, Prof. Dr. Shangfeng Yang and Prof. Dr. Sergey I. Troyanov

    Article first published online: 8 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402573

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Interesting structural relations exist between CF3 derivatives of both Sc3N@D5h-C80 and Sc3N@Ih-C80: Triple-hexagon-junction-added CF3 groups are present in all Sc3N@C80(CF3)14,16 compounds, and the Sc3N cluster is fixed inside the C80 cage. Sc3N@D5h-C80(CF3)16 (picture) is a precursor of the known Sc3N@D5h-C80(CF3)18. Seven Sc3N@Ih-C80(CF3)14 isomers form two subfamilies with different relative positions of CF3 groups and the Sc3N cluster.
