      The global energy crisis and environmental pollution have drawn the attention of scientists like Moon Jeong Park et al. on page 2363 toward the development of efficient electrochemical devices. Polymer electrolytes integrated with ionic liquids have the potential to serve as new solid-state conductors in diverse electrochemical devices, where the achievement of high ion transport properties in these electrolytes is key to improving the device efficiency. The creation of self-assembled morphologies in ionic-liquid-containing polymer electrolytes using block copolymers has emerged as a novel prospective technique geared toward obtaining next-generation electrochemical devices with enhanced performances. The cover image shows the anisotropic conductivity of aligned samples.

      Cell sheet engineering for regenerative medicine provides an alternative to the use of biodegradable scaffold materials and the injection of single cell suspensions. A novel temperature-responsive tissue culture surface is prepared by Sopita Wong-In et al. on page 3061 using ultraviolet irradiation to graft poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-acrylamide) onto commercial tissue culture surfaces. The cells grow as successfully on the grafted surface as those cultured on the ungrafted surface. When the temperature is reduced, the confluent cells can be detached as a continuous sheet that preserves tight junctions and extracellular matrix proteins, allowing the creation of multilayered sheets. Cell morphology, shown in the cover image, is photographed under a bright-field inverted microscope.
