      FeCl3 doped poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) is a convenient UV-curable organometallic polymer with potential application in optical data processing technologies and real-time holographic recording. Jörg Guido Schauberger et al. on page 3623 use a high molar mass polymer to study the effects of UV irradiation on PVA films. The image shows a micrograph of a silicon wafer that is coated with a UV-curable PVA/FeCl3 system. The sample is irradiated through a quartz-chromium mask, developed in deionized water, and dried under constant air flow. The micrograph is recorded with polarized light at a magnification of 100, and the obtained structures have a diameter of approximately 300 micrometers.

      Industrial water-soluble dyes, especially dyes that are not easily reactive or biodegradable, are a problematic water pollutant group. Ardeshir Khazaei et al. on page 3439 offer a novel route for one-pot synthesis of a new triazene-group-containing polymer, in order to improve the process of adsorbing water-soluble dyes. This solvent-free method improves upon efficiency, energy consumption, cost, and environmental friendliness for use in water refinery. The cover shows microscopic images of the crude silica gel particles and silica-coated poly(4-(4-aminophenylsulfonyl)diazobenzene). A Carl Zeiss axioskop-40 microscope is used to obtain microscopic images at 200× optical zoom by digital imaging with a resolution of 1300 × 1030 pixels and 12-bit digitization.

      Highlights:

      • 1
        Amphiphilicity was achieved by sulphonation of polystyrene (PS) microspheres.
      • 2
        Porous structure was formed by a non-polymeric pore-formation process.
      • 3
        With sulfonic group, the polymer particles were easy to composite with inorganic particles.
      • 4
        The porous structure and excellent amphiphilicity contributed to expanded applications.
