    1. Polymers as Advanced Materials (pages 108–109)

      Prof. Claus D. Eisenbach and Prof. Dietrich Haarer

      Article first published online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890010402

      The crucial role that polymers play in the electronics industry is just one example of how modern life has been influenced by these multi purpose materials. Development of novel polymers with new and exciting properties and their effective application requires an interdisciplinary effort. This has guided the structuring of the research effort in West Germany. One result of this has been the founding of an Institute for Materials Science in Bayreuth.

    1. Modeling organic surfaces with self-assembled monolayers (pages 110–116)

      Dr. Colin D. Bain and Prof. George M. Whitesides

      Article first published online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890010403

      The modification of the structure and properties of surfaces by adsorbing a functionalized organic monolayer onto them is demonstrated for the case of long chain thiols HS(CH2)nX on a gold substrate. This is represented schematically in the figure. Variation of the X group and a study of the relationship between microscopic structure and macroscopic properties leads to a better understanding of interfacial phenomena such as wettability.

    1. Functionalized Conducting Polymers—Towards Intelligent Materials (pages 117–121)

      Dr. Francis Garnier

      Article first published online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890010404

      Three dimensional networks of functionalized conjugated polymers in the form of molecular wires (see figure) can interact with external physical and chemical phenomena to form the basis of molecular devices such as sensors, transducers, memories and logic operators. The further development of these materials will represent the next step towards intelligent materials.

      Prof. Günther Heimke

      Article first published online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890010405

      Biomaterials replace body tissues which no longer fulfill their function. In the first article of a quarterly review series Günther Heimke traces the development of biomaterials research and highlights important areas such as ceramics, polymers and the interfaces between these materials and the organic host environment.
