      Selective and responsive nanoreactors based on amphiphilic block copolymers are presented by Nico Bruns, Wolfgang Meier, and co-workers on page 1241. Nanoreactors with channel proteins in their walls allow molecules of determined size, charge, or hydrophobicity to specifically enter their inner cavity. Inside the nanoreactors, encapsulated enzymes can selectively catalyze chemical reactions. The reaction products can be selectively released via encapsulated channel proteins.

      The combination of non-conventional deposition methods and post-treatments makes it possible to obtain large-scale ordering within the deposited materials, leading to functional architectures for organic electronics. For instance, an extensive rearrangement of unorganized molecules can be promoted by increasing the molecular mobility at the surface, simply performing a post-annealing step into a solvent-saturated environment. Further details can be found in the article by Vincenzo Palermo, Klaus Müllen, Franco Cacialli, Paolo Samorì, and co-workers on page 1279.

      Self-assembly processes allow designing magnetic architectures with tailored magnetic properties and dimensions that approach the ultimate atomic limit. Control of the geometry and internal structure of individual magnetic particles, combined with deep understanding of the underlying physical interactions, leads to fine tuning of functional aspects and opens new perspectives in nanoelectronics, spintronics, and quantum computation.

      STM images of random 2D disordered, glassy coordination networks are presented by Svetlana Klyatskaya, Florian Klappenberger, Johannes V. Barth, Mario Ruben, and co-workers on page 1230. The coordination assembly was induced by co-deposited cobalt atoms engaging in lateral metal–ligand interactions with the ditopic linker that is nonlinear, prochiral, and bears terminal carbonitrile groups on the Ag(111) substrate. This work represents a first example of a novel strategy in constructing metal-organic materials: the divergent coordination assembly.

      Nanoreactors that discriminate between molecules as well as strategies to modulate access by external triggers are reviewed. The covered systems include nature’s nanoreactors such as protein-based microcompartments, protein cages, and viruses, as well as artificial and biomimetic systems such as polymersomes equipped with channel proteins, dendrimers, and layer-by-layer capsules.

      Gold nanoparticles offer the possibility of creating novel metamaterials, and additionally, liquid crystals offer the possibility of creating self-organizing and self-assembling materials. These two concepts are combined in an attempt to create self-assembling materials that possess unique optical properties.

      Star-branched, low-molecular-weight, liquid-crystalline molecules and miktoarm star terpolymers, i.e., small molecules and polymers with three or four different and incompatible arms, form a wide variety of new and complex morphologies in 3D or 2D ordered soft bulk phases and in thin films on solid and liquid surfaces, ranging in length scale from a few nanometers to hundreds of nanometers.
