Front Cover: Even though the poly(lactic acid) (PLA)/poly(butylene adipate-co-terephthalate) (PBAT) blends exhibit two phases, evidence indicates that partial mis-cibility may be present: small changes in glass transition temperature and melting temperature of the PLA phase and a dependence of the spherulitic growth rate on blend composition and the occlusion of PBAT droplets inside PLA spherulites. Further details can be found in the article by E. Quero, A. J. Müller,* F. Signori, M.-B. Coltelli, and S. Bronco on page 36.
