Front Cover: On page 1205, K. Landfester and co-workers present tailor-made nanocapsules with integrated superparamagnetic nanoparticles and equipped with a thermolabile shell which possess dual-functionality. After efficient encapsulation of a model dye, a release of the payload can be externally triggered by application of an alternating magnetic field. Additionally, the nanocontainers can act as contrast agents for MRI.
