abstract

  • Porous spherical nanocontainers … … densely packed with valerates (pictured as juggling balls) are very stable and indicate the unique possibility of hydrophobic clustering inside a cavity, as reported by A. Müller and co-workers in their Communication on page 6634 ff. The clusters remain intact at temperatures of up to nearly the boiling point of water (© jokatoons/bildkistl, Fotolia.com).
