      Ecological concerns are increasingly important in finding sustainable and efficient ways to transform biomass-derived building blocks into functional pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs). PSAs are soft polymeric materials that show permanent stickiness at room temperature and adhere to surfaces via noncovalent forces when light pressure is applied. Richard Vendamme, Nicolas Schüwer, and Walter Eevers review developments in this emerging field, summarize origins and requirements of biobased building blocks, describe the materials science of stickiness, overview recent approaches toward synthetic biobased PSAs, and draw a parallel between renewable synthetic PSAs and nature's selfadhesive glues. They highlight the emergence of a new generation of synthetic PSAs that approach those found in the natural world. DOI: 10.1002/app.40669

      Fiber-reinforced friction materials possess unique self-lubrication capabilities and can reduce the environmental impact of the friction materials industry. This has attracted interest in the use of biodegradable and nontoxic raw materials, such as jute fibers. In the study by Yunhai Ma et al., jute fibers are processed to have a dumbbell-shaped structure and used as reinforced fibers in friction materials. These dumbbell-shaped jute fibers improve the interfacial strength between straight jute fibers and the substrate, and enhance the wear-resistance of friction materials. The cover shows the morphology of jute fiber-reinforced friction materials with a dumbbell-shaped spacing of 10 mm. DOI: 10.1002/app.40748
