      Front Cover: The front cover shows that spin-coating a mixture solution of P3HT and PCBM on a cold substrate can increase the power conversion efficiency by 30-40% compared with the solar cells made by the conventional method. The image highlights the spin-coating on a cold substrate and the in situ generated desirable bulk heterojunction (BHJ). Further details can be found in the article by J. Y. Oh, T. I. Lee, J.-M. Myoung, U. Jeong,* and H. K. Baik*on page 1066.

      Back Cover: Hierarchically structured smart honeycomb surface was elaborated, from PS-b-P4VP pH-responsive block copolymer, using the breath-figure process. The reversible pH-sensitive wettability is associated to the ordering at the micrometer length scale and to the copolymer nano self-assembly. Further information can be found in the communication by P. Escalé, L. Rubatat, C. Derail, M. Save,* and L. Billon*on page 1072.

    2. Fabrication of Nanofillers into a Granular “Nanosupport” for Ziegler-Natta Catalysts: Towards Scalable in situ Preparation of Polyolefin Nanocomposites (pages 1052–1059)

      Yawei Qin, Ning Wang, Yong Zhou, Yingjuan Huang, Hui Niu and Jin-Yong Dong

      Version of Record online: 25 MAY 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100166

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A scalable approach to the in situ preparation of polyolefin nanocomposites is reported, which is realized by transforming nanofillers (clay, multiwalled carbon nanotubes, etc.) into granular “nanosupports” for Ziegler-Natta catalysis. So-prepared polyolefin nanocomposites are of controlled granular particle morphology, which makes them suitable for industrial olefin polymerization facilities for mass production of polyolefin nanocomposites.

      Frontispiece: A simple and facile detection and removal of mercury ion in aqueous solution can be performed using sensor ensemble comprising water-soluble conjugated polymer and thymine. Upon interacting with mercury ion, fluorescence of the ensemble shows blue-to-red color change. Simultaneously, mercury ion can be removed from the solution by simple filtration resulted from efficient precipitation with the ensemble. Further details can be found in the article by N. Y. Kwon, D. Kim, J. H. Son, G. S. Jang, J. H. Lee, and T. S. Lee*on page 1061.

    1. Simultaneous Detection and Removal of Mercury Ions in Aqueous Solution with Fluorescent Conjugated Polymer-Based Sensor Ensemble (pages 1061–1065)

      Na Young Kwon, Daigeun Kim, Ji Hye Son, Geun Seok Jang, Jung Hyo Lee and Taek Seung Lee

      Version of Record online: 10 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100255

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A new concept for the simultaneous detection and removal of mercury ions is reported using a sensor ensemble composed of a water-soluble conjugated polymer and thymine. Visible detection is achieved by selective binding of mercury ions which leads to a fluorescence color change of the aggregates, which can be isolated easily by filtration to remove the toxic mercury ion.

    2. Coating on a Cold Substrate Largely Enhances Power Conversion Efficiency of the Bulk Heterojunction Solar Cell (pages 1066–1071)

      Spin-coating a mixture solution of P3HT and PCBM on a cold substrate successfully generates a desirable bulk heterojunction (BHJ). This simple process increases the power conversion efficiency by 30–40% compared with the BHJ solar cells made by the conventional method.

      Biocompatible photo-responsive micelles based on DNQ grafted comb-like PEG are explored as new approach for triggered release of hydrophobic coumarin 102. Cell viability against two cells indicates that the micelles with PEG shell have excellent biocompatibility. Upon exposure to 365nm UV light, the micelles can be disrupted and exhibit photo-induced ON-OFF release.

    6. The Effect of Hydrogen Bonding on Intramolecular Chain Transfer in Polymerization of Acrylates (pages 1090–1095)

      Version of Record online: 25 MAY 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100224

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Intramolecular chain transfer to polymer in acrylates is suppressed by H-bonding in the system. Branching levels can be manipulated through solvent choice, permitting the determination of kp values for 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate in bulk and for butyl acrylate in butanol by pulsed-laser polymerization.

    7. Frontal Polymerization: Polymerization Induced Destabilization of Peracrylates (pages 1096–1100)

      Astrid Gugg, Christian Gorsche, Norbert Moszner and Robert Liska

      Version of Record online: 3 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100188

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Peroxides as thermal initiators for photoinduced “frontal polymerization” enable the induction of a polymerizing front at the surface of a formulation that migrates through the material. Due to copolymerization induced destabilization of (meth)acrylate-based peroxides, an in situ formed thermal initiator can be created, allowing lower front temperatures and formulations with sufficient storage stability.

      PNIPAAm grafted dextran nanogels with dodecyl and thiol end groups have been synthesized by RAFT process. These nanogels can self assemble into ordered stable nanostructures, either through direct noncovalent interactions, or indirectly using external stimuli (temperature and redox potential).

      Novel graft-crosslinked copolymers based on poly(arylene ether ketone)-gc-sulfonated poly(arylene ether sulfone) (PAEK-gc-SPAES) were prepared and showed nano-scale phase-separation microstructure. The obtained ductile membranes exhibited anisotropic swelling, good dimensional stability as well as high proton conductivity in both in-plane and through-plane directions.
