Growing microtubes from polyoxometallate crystals
The long-awaited first issue of Nature Chemistry is out. It has a number of excellent reviews and research articles; best of all, it is all in free access. The cover shows the artist's impression of "a growing microtube with a single polyoxometalate ion visible at the open end of the tube" [see Ritchie et al. (2009) Nature Chemistry 1, 47–52, and comment, Constable, E. (2009) Nature Chemistry 1, 22–23].
