      Front Cover: The front cover shows the oriented synthesis of one-dimensional (1-D) polypyrrole (PPy) molecule using a metal-organic framework (MOF) with 1-nm channels as a template. The obtained 1-D PPy has highly structural order and excellent conductivity, improved by as much as 5 orders of magnitude in comparison with that of 2-D PPy prepared by another MOF. Further details can be found in the article by Q.-X. Wang and C.-Y. Zhang* on page 1610.

      Back Cover: SEM images show single-crystal 2D polyaniline microplates obtained through self-assembly in the polymerization process. Structural studies indicate that the polyaniline molecules are arranged along the direction of microplate short axis. Due to the anisotropic arrangement of linear conjugated polyaniline molecules, the microplate exhibits a typical anisotropic electrical transport property. Further details can be found in the article by Y. Yan, J. Fang, Y. Zhang, H. Fan, and Z. Wei* on page 1640.

    1. Oriented Synthesis of One-Dimensional Polypyrrole Molecule Chains in a Metal-Organic Framework (pages 1610–1614)

      Qiang-Xin Wang and Chun-Yang Zhang

      Version of Record online: 5 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100305

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      We report for the first time the oriented synthesis of one-dimensional (1-D) polypyrrole (PPy) molecule chains using a metal-organic framework (MOF) with 1-nm channels as a template. The obtained 1-D PPy has highly structural order and excellent conductivity, which has improved by as much as 5 orders of magnitude in comparison with that of 2-D PPy preparated by another MOF.

    2. One-Pot Synthesis of Colloidal Nanobowls and Hybrid Multipod-like Nanoparticles by Radiation Miniemulsion Polymerization (pages 1615–1619)

      Xueping Ge, Xuewu Ge, Mozhen Wang, Huarong Liu, Bin Fang, Zhi Li, Xiaojun Shi, Cunzhong Yang and Guang Li

      Version of Record online: 5 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100337

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A facile approach is proposed to one-pot synthesize two kinds of nanoparticles: PS nanobowls and PS/silica hybrid multipod-like nanoparticles. The structure of nanobowls could be easily controlled by the weight ratio of monomer/silica. In addition, the multipod-like nanoparticles play important roles in hydrophobic properties.

    3. Thiol-alkyne Chemistry for the Preparation of Micelles with Glycopolymer Corona: Dendritic Surfaces versus Linear Glycopolymer in Their Ability to Bind to Lectins (pages 1620–1626)

      Jatin Kumar, Antoine Bousquet and Martina H. Stenzel

      Version of Record online: 19 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100331

      A block copolymer on a glycopolymer block and poly(butyl acrylate) PBA is directly compared to PBA with a dendritic glycopolymer as endfunctionality. Micelles from both amphiphilic materials show good binding to Concanavalin A although the dendritic surface underwent faster and more efficient binding to the lectin.

    4. Orienting the Demixion of a Diblock-copolymer Using 193 nm Interferometric Lithography for the Controlled Deposition of Nanoparticles (pages 1627–1633)

      Version of Record online: 16 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100399

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      DUV interferometric lithography and diblock copolymer self-organization have been combined to provide a simple and highly collective nanopatterning technique enabling the organization of nanoparticles over several orders of magnitude. This process opens new doors towards the preparation of high-density arrays of magnetic nanoparticles with potential applications in data storage.

    5. Dual Aggregation Behavior of Porphyrin-Cored Thiophene Dendrimers (pages 1634–1639)

      Suxiang Deng and Rigoberto C. Advincula

      Version of Record online: 12 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100288

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Unique dual H- and J-aggregation behavior is observed for porphyrin-cored thiophene dendrimers, T(3T)P and T(7T)P, for the first time. The intrinsic aggregation is in contrast to the use of surfactants, dyes, and metal ions in other porphyrins. Controlling the size, aggregation, and conjugation of dendronized porphyrins may enable better performance in electro-optical device applications.

    6. Self-Assembled Single-Crystal Polyaniline Microplates and Their Anisotropic Electrical Transport Property (pages 1640–1644)

      Yong Yan, Jin Fang, Yajie Zhang, Huili Fan and Zhixiang Wei

      Version of Record online: 10 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100279

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Single-crystal 2D polyaniline microplates are obtained through self-assembly in the polymerization process. Structural studies indicate that the polyaniline molecules are arranged along the direction of microplate short axis. Owing to the anisotropic arrangement of linear conjugated PANI molecules, the microplate shows a typical anisotropic electrical transport property.

    7. Ultrathin and Large-area Macroporous Polymeric Membranes Formed Through Self-assembly of Sub-10 nm Elastic Nanoparticles (pages 1645–1651)

      Yong Zhang and Qian Wang

      Version of Record online: 12 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100389

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Sub-10nm nanoparticles with an elastic core and a glassy corona, prepared from PS-b-PB block copolymers, are successfully used as the assembly units to form ultrathin (< 10nm) and large-area macroporous (sub-micrometer scale) polymeric membranes. The PS/PB block length ratios and solution concentrations play an important role in this spontaneous formation, indicating a nanoparticle-based self-assembly and dewetting process.

    8. New Thiol-Responsive Mono-Cleavable Block Copolymer Micelles Labeled with Single Disulfides (pages 1652–1657)

      Behnoush Khorsand Sourkohi, Rolf Schmidt and Jung Kwon Oh

      Version of Record online: 19 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201100372

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Thiol-responsive symmetric triblock copolymers having single disulfide linkages in the middle blocks (mono-cleavable block copolymers) were synthesized and self-assembled to form micelles in water. In response to thiols, the cleavage of disulfides caused dissociation of micelles to smaller-sized assembled structures.

    9. Synthesis of Eight-shaped Poly(ethylene oxide) by the Combination of Glaser Coupling with Ring-opening Polymerization (pages 1658–1663)

      Guowei Wang, Xiaoshan Fan, Bin Hu, Yannan Zhang and Junlian Huang
