Back Cover: Towards smart and stable nanosensors, post modification of gold nanoparticles by a dextran-based dual-sensitive polymer is carried out. The functionalized smart material shows not only impressive stability under various conditions, but also a pH-dependent optical response upon heating. Further details can be found in the article by W. Lv, S. Liu, X. Fan, S. Wang, G. Zhang, and F. Zhang*on page 454.
