      Honeycomb-structured porous films have important applications in numerous fields, such as optoelectronic devices, tissue engineering, and micro reactors. The breathe figure method (BFM) has received much attention as a highly efficient, low cost technique to prepare honeycomb films. Pengfei Zhang, Huawei Chen, and Deyuan Zhang describe an improved BFM to fabricate well-defined porous films by spraying atomized micro water droplets. Pore size and distribution can be well controlled by tuning process variables including spraying time, spraying flux, and solution concentration. Multi-level honeycomb film formation is made possible by spraying atomized water droplets twice. The cover shows a SEM image of polymer films with uniform pores formed by this method.

      Scaffolds for tissue engineering can provide the proper microenvironment for cell proliferation and differentiation. The unique physicochemical properties of silk fibroin have led to a wide variety of applications in biomaterials. The cover shows SEM images of the silk fibroin-chondroitin sulfate-alginate scaffolds used by Mitra Naeimi, Mohammadhossein Fathi, Mohammad Rafienia, and Shahin Bonakdar. It is shown that addition of chondroitin sulfate and alginate creates more open pores with thinner walls. This scaffold can be a good candidate for use as an efficient scaffold in cartilage tissue engineering. DOI: 10.1002/app.41048
