      Open-cell foams, often used as sound absorbers, can dampen acoustic energy by allowing fluid to flow through cells and dissipate energy. A bimodal foam structure is designed by Shahrzad Ghaffari Mosanenzadeh et al. by developing a water-soluble polymer blend with polylactic acid (PLA). The cover shows the overall cell structure of the PLA foam with rectangular cells and the micro pores extended throughout the foam structure, which are caused by polyethylene glycol penetrating into the PLA matrix. Because PLA is derived from plants, it can be produced using small amounts of fossil fuel, and it is expected to replace the commodity polymers polystyrene and polyethylene terephthalate.

      Hydrogels, as an adsorbent, can remove pollutants such as metal ions from aqueous solutions because they are easy to apply and regenerate, and they have a high removal capacity. Nalan Baş et al. use 60Co-γ radiation polymerization to obtain the homopolymer N,N-dimethylaminopropyl methacrylamide (DMAPMAm) and copolymers DMAPMAm/itaconic acid (DMAPMAm/IA), as shown in the scanning electron microscopy taken by Evren Çubukçu. The hydrogels are exposed to cobalt ions in an aqueous solution by using a phosphate buffer. X-ray diffraction reveals that crystals on the surface of the hydrogels are cobalt phosphate octahydrate (Co3(PO4)2.8H2O). DOI: 10.1002/app.39569
