Front Cover: Supramolecular polymers as self-healing materials: noncovalent, transient bonds generate reversible, dynamic networks, able to heal a physically damaged site multiple times. Concepts and examples of self-healing polymers based on hydrogen bonds, π–π interactions, ionomers, and coordinative bonds are discussed. Further details can be found in the article by F. Herbst, D. Dohler, P. Michael, and W. H. Binder* on page 203.
