      Front Cover: A redox-induced shape-memory polymer is prepared by cross-linking β-cyclodextrin modified chitosan and ferrocene modified poly(ethylene imine). The reversible redox-sensitive β-CD/Fc inclusion complexes and covalent cross-links serve as reversible phases and fi xing phases, respectively. This material can be processed into a desired temporary shape upon reduction and recovers to its initial shape after oxidation. The shape memory behavior also occurs when glucose is introduced with glucose oxidase entrapped in the system. Further details can be found in the article by Z.-Q. Dong, Y. Cao, Q.-J. Yuan, Y.-F. Wang, J.-H. Li, B.-J. Li,* and S. Zhang- on page 867.

      Post-Functionalization of Polymers via Orthogonal Ligation Chemistry (pages 810–849)

      Anja S. Goldmann, Mathias Glassner, Andrew J. Inglis and Christopher Barner-Kowollik

      The current status of selected post-functionalization techniques of polymers via orthogonal ligation chemistry is highlighted. Combining advanced living/controlled polymerization techniques with highly efficient coupling chemistries facilitates quantitative, modular, and orthogonal functionalization of synthetic polymer strands at their chain termini as well as side-chain functionalization.

    1. Exfoliation of Crystalline 2D Carbon Nitride: Thin Sheets, Scrolls and Bundles via Mechanical and Chemical Routes (pages 850–854)

      Michael J. Bojdys, Nikolai Severin, Jürgen P. Rabe, Andrew I. Cooper, Arne Thomas and Markus Antonietti

      The carbon nitride poly(triazine imide) with intercalated bromide ions—a graphitic material of 2D covalently bonded molecular layers—can be cleaved both mechanically and chemically into thin sheets and scrolls analogous to the carbon-only systems graphite and graphene. Cleaved sheets of this layered C, N material can be deposited via the Scotch tape technique or via spin-coating.

    2. Spontaneous Assembly of Miktoarm Stars into Vesicular Interpolyelectrolyte Complexes (pages 855–860)

      “Live” observation of soft matter by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) in liquid water: a star-shaped bis- hydrophilic cationic copolymer co-assembles with linear anionic polyelectrolytes into polymersomes as evidenced by cryo-TEM and in situ TEM in a native environment. Conditions for the formation of vesicular interpolyelectrolyte complexes are derived theoretically: the star-shaped architecture widens the range of the vesicular morphology.

    3. Rational Design and Synthesis of Hybrid Porous Polymers Derived from Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxanes via Heck Coupling Reactions (pages 861–866)

      Version of Record online: 26 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201200835

      Heck coupling reactions are introduced as an efficient method to prepare novel hybrid porous polymers from cubic functional polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes, iodinated octaphenylsilsesquioxanes, and octavinylsilsesquioxanes. Using the retained ethenylene groups, the resulting porous materials may be easily post-functionalized.

    4. Redox- and Glucose-Induced Shape-Memory Polymers (pages 867–872)

      Zhen-Qiang Dong, Ya Cao, Qi-Juan Yuan, Yi-Fu Wang, Jian-Hu Li, Bang-Jing Li and Sheng Zhang

      Version of Record online: 8 APR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201300084

      A redox-induced shape-memory polymer is prepared by crosslinking β-cyclodextrin modified chitosan and ferrocene modified branched poly(ethylene imine). The reversible redox-sensitive β-CD/Fc inclusion complexes and covalent crosslinks serve as reversible phases and fixing phases, respectively. The shape memory behavior also happens when glucose is introduced with glucose oxidase entrapped in the system. The recovery ratio and fixity ratio are above 70%.

    5. Poly(para-phenylene vinylene) and Polynorbornadiene Containing Rod-Coil Block Copoylmers via Combination of Acyclic Diene Metathesis and Ring-Opening Metathesis Polymerization (pages 873–878)

      Version of Record online: 8 APR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201300029

      Copolymerization of tri(iso propyl)silyl-substituted norbornadiene with different poly(para-phenylene vinylene) (PPV) precursors in a combined acyclic diene metathesis and/or ring-opening metathesis polymerization process gives novel rod-coil block copolymers. The resulting polymers show increased solubility compared with pure PPV and are examined by gel permeation chromatography, NMR, UV-vis, and fluorescence spectroscopy.

    6. Supramolecular Dynamics as Origin for Thermally Induced Insoluble-to-Soluble-to-Insoluble Transitions of Copolymers in Water (pages 879–882)

      Version of Record online: 25 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201300054

      A monomeric pseudo-betaine based on a cationic host for an anionic guest is synthesized. Polymerization of the complex with thermosensitive comonomers yields copolymers showing a thermally controlled solubility window in water. The obtained poly(pseudo-betaines) are insoluble below a certain temperature, soluble above it and finally insoluble when a second critical temperature is reached (ISI transition).

    7. A Novel Nanocage from the Cooperative Self-Assembly of Coil–Rod–Coil Triblock Copolymers and Nanopartilces (pages 883–886)

      Version of Record online: 26 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201300001

      This novel “nanocage” formed by the cooperative self-assembly of coil–rod–coil triblock copolymers enriches the material source of the nanocage. The novel structure is may be used to the release of drug and fertilizer, or the nanoreactors.
