Front Cover: The symmetric 1,26-diacid and 1,26-diol, both prepared from erucic acid by olefin self-metathesis, were polymerized to yield long-chain aliphatic polyesters. Their renewable origin and possible biodegradability make them attractive candidates to be used as replacement of petroleum-based plastics. For more information, see the Full Paper by C. Vilela, A. J. D. Silvestre, and M. A. R. Meier* on page 2220.
