Cover: The cover picture shows a strategy used to synthesize new functional polyethylenes (PE). A neodymium based complex catalyzes ethylene chain growth reaction on MgR2 producing Mg(PE)2. Those are excellent candidates to react with disulfides of thiocarbonylated compounds (RC(S)SSC-(S)R). Further details can be found in the Communication by R. Godoy Lopez, C. Boisson, F. D'Agosto,* R. Spitz, F. Boisson, D. Gigmes, and D. Bertin on page 173.
