      The imaging of fiber surfaces and surface treatments is key to investigating the adhesion between the fiber and matrix in composite materials. The cover shows a scanning electron microscope (SEM) image of natural flax fibers following treatment with a fatty acid. The strong image contrast between different organic materials is revealed by the latest generation energy filtered in-lens SEM detectors using low accelerating voltages, as demonstrated by Ron Rasch et al. The new detectors allow the visualization of the material contrast of polymer specimens in an unaltered state and without the traditional requirement of conductive metal coatings. They are ideal for investigations of the outermost surfaces of natural polymers that are easily damaged by the higher accelerating voltages required by previous generation detectors.

      As a new strategy for wastewater treatment, advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) can promote the degradation of contaminants. Studies of TiO2 immobilized on the internal surface of polyethylene terephthalate bottles have shown promising results in closed, stationary systems for water disinfection and arsenic removal. Allen Lopes de Barros et al. propose an immobilization procedure by investigating flat PET/TiO2 films in UV/TiO2-based AOPs. The scanning electron microscopy image on the cover illustrates the visual aspect of these TiO2 films. This procedure demonstrates economical and environmental advantages because it uses small amounts of chemicals, generates almost no residues, and reduces the energy consumption by not involving heating steps.
