      The cover image shows a transmission electron micrograph of CaCO3 nanoparticles derived from chicken eggshell using a combination of mechanochemical and sonochemical techniques by Tarig Hassan, Vijaya Rangari, and Shaik Jeelani on page 1442. These highly crystalline and irregular platelets influence and increase the surface area of nanoparticles to ∼ 44 m2/g. This significant increase in the materials properties at low loadings of the nanofillers highlights the importance of this new class of bio-based materials, particularly beneficial to the automotive sector where the continued need for material weight reduction must always be balanced with the consideration of structural requirements.

      Epoxy resins are versatile raw materials for industrial products, such as windmill blades, aerospace parts, generator encapsulations, microelectronics, and structural adhesives. Stephan Sprenger on page 1421 gives an overview of the state of research, with a focus on mechanical properties. In a cured epoxy resin, nanosilica should be monodispersed. Most research shows well-dispersed nanoparticles and claims that improvements are a result of the good dispersion. The cover image shows agglomerates in cured epoxy resin, where the agglomeration is induced upon cure with an additive.
