The ‘Self-organisation of nanoparticles‘ themed issue guest edited by Professor Nicholas A. Kotov (University of Michigan) is now online. Professor Kotov introduces the themed issue with an editorial on ‘Practical aspects of self-organization of nanoparticles: experimental guide and future applications’.
The outside cover image come from the Feature Article Self-assembly and flux closure studies of magnetic nanoparticle rings by Alexander Wei, Takeshi Kasama and Rafal E. Dunin-Borkowski. The inside cover features an image from Reversible assembly of metal nanoparticles induced by penicillamine. Dynamic formation of SERS hot spots by Patricia Taladriz-Blanco and co-workers.
The full issue is published in Journal of Materials Chemistry as issue 42, 2011, but here is a selection of Applications & Feature Articles as a sample of what the issue contains.
