Hot Article: Systematic approach to electrostatically induced 2D crystallization of nanoparticles at liquid interfaces

A strategy for inducing two-dimensional crystallization of charged nanoparticles on oppositely charged fluid interfaces has been developed by US scientists.

Graphical abstract: Systematic approach to electrostatically induced 2D crystallization of nanoparticles at liquid interfaces

The team led by Masafumi Fukuto and Lin Yang at Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA, used in situ X-ray scattering measurements at the liquid–vapor interface to investigate the assembly of cowpea mosaic virus on positively charged lipid monolayers.
