Cover: Halloysite clay nanotubes are used for encapsulation and sustained release of bioactive compounds. A layer-by-layer assembly of polyelectrolyte shells of different compositions on these nanotubes allows additional control over drug release rate. Further details can be found in the article by N. G. Veerabadran, D. Mongayt, V. Torchilin, R. R. Price, and Y. M. Lvov* on page 99.
