Harmeet Bhoday, Dr. Nathan Knotts and Dr. Rainer Glaser published an article titled “Perfect Polar Alignment of Parallel Beloamphiphile Layers: Improved Structural Design Bias Realized in Ferroelectric Crystals of the Novel “Methoxyphenyl Series of Acetophenone Azines” in Chemistry – A European Journal. The article was selected by the editor of the journal to be highlighted as both a cover feature and cover profile. This article also appears in Hot Topic: Crystal Engineering.

The cover image depicts one (MeO-Ph, Y)-azine molecule and a model of a perfectly polar stacked bilayer. The floodlight illumination presents a graphic metaphor of second-harmonic generation (frequency doubling) by the crystalline ferroelectric materials.

Harmeet Bhoday is a current doctoral student and Dr. Nathan Knotts was a former graduate student in the group of Dr. Rainer Glaser, professor of chemistry.
