ChemPlusChem 5/2013: Like Oil and Water
In the cover article, Martin Pumera et al. use self-propelled biocompatible capsules loaded with various surfactants and compared their influence upon movement of oil droplets. Their findings are expected to have great impact on potential applications of such capsules for environmental clean-up. Also, a report on visualizing hyperconjugation through UV-photoelectron spectroscopy is outlined by Vladimir Ya. Lee et al. Meanwhile, Pierre Frère et al. describe the synthesis as well as the optical, theoretical, electrochemical, X-ray, and electrical characteristics of new thiophene/furan-capped co-oligomers for organic field-effect transistors.
