      Front Cover: For the first time a bicontinuous structure, with the supramolecular blocks forming the core of the core–shell gyroid morphology, has been realized in block copolymer-based hydrogen-bonded side-chain supramolecules. By dissolving the side chains well-ordered nanoporous films were obtained. Further information can be found in the article by G. G. du Sart, I. Vukovic, Z. Vukovic, E. Polushkin, P. Hiekkataipale, J. Ruokolainen, K. Loos,* and G. ten Brinke*on page 366.

      Back Cover: The image shows walnutlike microparticles with supramolecular liquid-crystalline ordering fabricated by combining a simple self-organized precipitation method with hydrogen-bonding interactions. Their morphologies can be easily controlled with the feed ratio between an azopyridyl polymer and sebacic acid. Further details can be found in the article by H. Liu, T. Kobayashi, and H. Yu*on page 378.

    1. Amphiphilic Peptide–Polymer Conjugates with Side-Conjugation (pages 344–353)

      Nikhil Dube, Andrew D. Presley, Jessica Y. Shu and Ting Xu

      Version of Record online: 27 JAN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201000603

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Amphiphilic peptide–polymer conjugates were designed and synthesized by covalently attaching hydrophobic polymers to the exterior of a coiled-coil helix bundle. The protein structures are dictated by the polymers' hydrophobicity and competitive interactions between peptide, polymer, and solvent. Using amphiphilic peptide–polymer conjugates, it is feasible to enhance solution processability of biological motifs while maintaining the protein structures.

    1. Thermoresponsive Block Copolymer–Protein Conjugates Prepared by Grafting-from via RAFT Polymerization (pages 354–359)

      Ming Li, Hongmei Li, Priyadarsi De and Brent S. Sumerlin

      Version of Record online: 7 JAN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201000619

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Reversible addition–fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization is a promising method to create well defined hybrid biomaterials. Two consecutive grafting-from RAFT polymerizations were employed to make block copolymer-protein conjugates. The resulting bioconjugates possessed temperature sensitivity due to the immobilized stimuli-responsive polymer component.

      Version of Record online: 27 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201000623

      Fluorescence image patterning of a substituted acetylene polymer film with a large fractional free volume is successfully conducted by a microcontact printing method using several kinds of chemical ink compounds.

    2. Nanoporous Network Channels from Self-Assembled Triblock Copolymer Supramolecules (pages 366–370)

      Gerrit Gobius du Sart, Ivana Vukovic, Zorica Vukovic, Evgeny Polushkin, Panu Hiekkataipale, Janne Ruokolainen, Katja Loos and Gerrit ten Brinke

      Version of Record online: 3 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201000674

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      For the first time a bicontinuous structure with the side-chain supramolecular blocks forming the core of the core–shell gyroid morphology has been realised in block copolymer-based hydrogen-bonded side-chain supramolecules. Supramolecular complexes of a poly(tert-butoxystyrene)-b-polystyrene-b-poly(4-vinylpyridine) triblock copolymers and less than stoichiometric amounts of PDP self-assembled into a core–shell gyroid morphology with the core formed by the hydrogen-bonded P4VP(PDP) complexes. After structure formation, well-ordered nanoporous films were obtained by simply washing away PDP with ethanol.

    3. Nanostructured Heteroarm Star Block Terpolymers via an Extension of the “In–Out” Polymerization Route (pages 371–377)

      George Linardatos, Georgia Tsoukleri, John Parthenios, Costas Galiotis, Orietta Monticelli, Saverio Russo and Constantinos Tsitsilianis

      Version of Record online: 27 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201000599

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Novel multiarm, multisegmented, star-shaped block terpolymers have been synthesized by anionic “living” polymerization in one-pot/four step reaction by extending the “in–out” polymerization method. The so prepared PSn-PDVB-(PHMA-b-PMMA)n heteroarm star block terpolymers, although they exhibit a complex architecture, they self-assemble in the bulk, forming lamellar nanostructures by arm and block segregation.

    4. Easy Fabrication and Morphology Control of Supramolecular Liquid-Crystalline Polymer Microparticles (pages 378–383)

      Hui Liu, Takaomi Kobayashi and Haifeng Yu

      Version of Record online: 6 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201000582

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A novel kind of microparticles with walnutlike morphologies is fabricated with an azopyridine-containing polymer and sebacic acid by combining a simple self-organized precipitation method with supramolecular interactions. Hydrogen bonds are formed during the microparticle formation process between azopyridyl groups and carboxylic acid units. In comparison with the particles prepared with polymer only, the obtained supramolecular microparticles process not only liquid-crystalline natures but also wrinkled surfaces.

    5. Dynamic Random Access Memory Effect and Memory Device Derived from a Functional Polyimide Containing Electron Donor-Acceptor Pairs in the Main Chain (pages 384–389)

      Guofeng Tian, Dezhen Wu, Shengli Qi, Zhanpeng Wu and Xiaodong Wang

      Version of Record online: 3 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201000570

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A functional polyimide which has a bistable property is reported. The device based on this polyimide exhibits two accessible conductivity states, which can be reversibly switched from the low-conductivity (OFF) state to the high-conductivity (ON) state with an ON/OFF current ratio of about 104. And the short retention time suggests that the device fulfils the functionality of a dynamic random access memory (DRAM).

    6. Hyperbranched Polycarbonate-Based Multimolecular Micelle with Enhanced Stability and Loading Efficiency (pages 390–396)

      Wei Su, Xiao-hua Luo, Hua-fen Wang, Lei Li, Jun Feng, Xian-Zheng Zhang and Ren-xi Zhuo

      Version of Record online: 3 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201000600

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A facile catalyst-free method was developed to prepare hyperbranched polycarbonate by means of SCROP strategy. PEGylated hyperbranched polycarbonate micelle was further designed. The micelles show great stability in very dilute aqueous medium and display good cell-biocompatibility. An anticancer drug of doxorubicin can be effectively loaded in the micelles and the release of encapsulated doxorubicin presents a sustained characteristic.

    7. Synthesis of a Novel Glycopeptide by Polymeranalogous Reaction of Gelatin with Mono-6-para-toluenesulfonyl-β-cyclodextrin and its Supramolecular Properties (pages 397–403)

      Dominika B. Bernert, Kathrin Isenbügel and Helmut Ritter

      Version of Record online: 22 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201000554

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A novel glycoprotein with supramolecular self-recognition, synthesized from the polymeranalogous reaction of gelatin with mono-6-para-toluenesulfonyl-β-cyclodextrin is described. The obtained CD-glycopolymer exhibits highly interesting properties and the ability to form intramolecular inclusion complexes. This phenomenon was proven by 2D NMR and dynamic light scattering (DLS).

    8. Synthesis of Hydrogels from Polyallylamine with Carbon Dioxide as Gellant: Development of Reversible CO2 Absorbent (pages 404–410)

      Daisuke Nagai, Akinori Suzuki and Takaya Kuribayashi

      Version of Record online: 27 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201000601

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Hydrogels were successfully synthesized utilizing CO2as a gellant. A cross-linking reaction of polyallylamine with CO2in the presence of 1,8-Diazabicyclo[5,4,0]-undec-7-ene provided hydrogels bearing urea cross-linking points and residual amino groups in the side chains. The obtained hydrogels could absorb and desorb CO2 reversibly, demonstrating their potential application as recyclable CO2 absorption materials.
