      The cover shows an atomic force microscope image of a self-assembled collagen film after being regenerated from the 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([EMIM][Ac])-based ionic liquid solvent system, as presented by Yang Hu et al. on page 2245. The regenerated collagen sample shows a cross-striation pattern with a compact, regular arrangement that is characteristic of the original collagen, indicating that the regenerated collagen sample still retains structural integrity. Some disfigurement in the pattern indicates possible disruption in the conformation of the regenerated collagen sample, but most of the arrangements remain compact, suggesting that the solvent system could be used in dissolving collagen.

      Cellulose is a biopolymer that is renewable, low in price, high in availability, and has good mechanical properties. However, its high molecular weight, high crystallinity, rigid backbone chain, and insolubility cause challenges to cellulose's chemical modification. Lin Dai, Dan Li, and Jing He on page 2257 demonstrate a blending method and graft polymerization to develop novel degradable materials. The cover image shows a scanning electron microscopy of degraded cellulose-graft-poly(l-lactide). The many holes on the surface indicate weight loss, which increases with processing. The material is expected to be environmentally friendly, and such graft material may become an ideal platform for the design of carrier biomaterials in the fields of controlled release of drugs and regenerative medicine.
