Abstract

original image

Front Cover: Three block copolymers featuring a flavin moiety, a hydrophobic (methyl, benzyl, and naphthyl) methacrylate block and a post-functionalized trimethylammonium group were synthesized to be used as environmental probes. The photograph shows the propensity of these polymers to form gels in dilute aqueous solutions. Further details can be found in the article by B. Fitzpatrick, B. Creran, G. Cooke*, and V. M. Rotello* on page 1758.
