      Cover: Composite design is a complex task because the desired effects of a component or a processing step may be accompanied by side effects. Monitoring the nanostructure under service conditions may accelerate the design by guiding the focus of the designer. The front cover illustrates nanostructure evolution mechanisms during slow load-cycling of oriented HDPE/PA microfibrillar blends studied as a function of composition. Further details can be found in the article by A. Zeinolebadi, N. Stribeck,* M. Ganjaee-Sari, N. Dencheva, Z. Denchev, and S. Botta on page 1102.

      Progress in the application of onium-functionalised polymers in the design of permanent non-leaching antimicrobial surfaces is reviewed. The review highlights synthetic and processing routes towards the integration of onium functionalities into solid materials. Materials structure/activity relationships and potential applications are discussed.

    1. Injection Moulding Difficult Nanopatterns with Hybrid Polymer Inlays (pages 1075–1080)

      John M. Stormonth-Darling and Nikolaj Gadegaard

      Version of Record online: 26 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/mame.201100397

      A new method for fabricating inlays for injection moulding by nanoimprint lithography in SU-8 is developed. Nanoscale pillar structures are successfully replicated in polycarbonate and display a stretching effect which can be tuned to make pillars up to 1.4 times their designed height. This process will prove useful for large volume prototyping of nanopatterned polymeric devices.

    1. Dual-Cure Thermoset Amide- and Acrylate-Functionalized Latexes (pages 1081–1090)

      Serkan Bas and Mark D. Soucek

      Version of Record online: 24 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/mame.201100372

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Amide- and acrylate-functionalized latex dispersions for dual-cure waterborne coatings are presented. Elongation, tensile strength, and storage modulus of the films increase with increasing concentration of photosensitizer, which at the same time leads to broadened glass transitions of the films due to the formation of multiple domains.

    2. Modification of Polydimethylsiloxane Coatings by H2 RF Plasma, Xe2* Excimer VUV Radiation, and Low-Energy Electron Beams (pages 1091–1101)

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Thin layers of polydimethylsiloxane are processed by H2 radio-frequency plasma, Xe2* excimer VUV light, and a low-energy electron beam. Reflection/absorption infrared spectroscopy reveals characteristic differences in the chemical modifications induced by these processes. They are explained by the nature of the initial interaction with the involved energetic quanta or particles.

    4. From “Strong” to “Much Stronger”: Utilization of Green Tea Extract Dispersant for SWCNT-Reinforced Polymer Composites (pages 1114–1123)

      Ahmed Jalal Uddin, Akihira Watanabe, Yasuo Gotoh, Takeshi Saito and Motoo Yumura

      Version of Record online: 30 MAY 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/mame.201100422

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Green tea extract is manipulated in organic solvents such as DMSO with PVA to disperse SWCNTs to almost individual states. By incorporating a minute amount of individually-dispersed SWCNTs, the PVA fibers show an extraordinary reinforcement in compressive and fibrillation properties together with tensile and dynamic mechanical properties.
