Helices on helices: Nanohelices of polycrystalline cadmium sulfide (see transmission electron micrograph) have been made by the mineralization of helical self-assembled objects shaped like twisted ribbons. The coiled morphology of the inorganic helices apparently results from growth on only one face of the organic ribbon template.
