      Front Cover: An image of an optically active poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT*) film prepared by an electrochemical polymerization method in a chiral nematic liquid crystal field is shown. The chiral nematic liquid crystal used here provides a sequential chiral pattern as a molecular mold during the polymerization, and the polymer grows in the three-dimensional chiral field to form a one-handed helical structure. This simple method provides a new technique for preparing chiral conducting films in a thermotropic chiral liquid crystal field.

      Back Cover: The free-radical addition of ω-functional mercaptans onto polybutadiene-based block copolymers represents a modular approach toward well-defined block copolymers with, for example, ester, carboxylic acid, or amine functionalities. The modification reaction proceeds smoothly and yields quantitatively functionalized block copolymers without changing the molecular weight distribution of the parent copolymer.
