Abstract

original image

Micro-stereolithography (μSL) is used to produce 3D porous polymer structures by templating high internal phase emulsions, as reported by Frederik Claeyssens, Neil R. Cameron, and co-workers on page 3178. The frontispiece shows an SEM image of an emulsion-templated porous polymer feature produced using the technique. The insets show a magnified intersection point of a grid structure (top) and further detail of the porous material by SEM (bottom).
