5_11b/2013Back Cover: Fundamental Insight into the Substrate-Dependent Ripening of Monodisperse Clusters (ChemCatChem 11/2013)

Close-up on cluster ripening The cover picture shows the ripening of monodisperse clusters upon tuning of the periodic substrate wettability. On superstructured graphene, clusters grow mainly by Smoluchowski ripening, whereas Ostwald ripening dominates on bare metal and on superstructured hexagonal boron-nitride (h-BN) substrates. In their Full Paper on page 3330 ff., F. Esch and co-workers explore the fundamental limits of the thermal stability of supported clusters.
