      Front Cover: Polyaniline nanofibers provide a promising support for a layer of polypyrrole that is produced by facile vapor phase polymerization of pyrrole on its surface. The polypyrrole layer significantly enhances the hydrogen storage capacity of the conducting composite material when compared with the polyaniline nanofibers. The hydrogen is stored reversibly in the new composite following a dual form mechanism. Further details can be found in the article by N. F. Attia and K. E. Geckeler* on page 931.

      The development of click chemistry has provided a versatile toolbox of building blocks for materials assembly, allowing the design of next-generation materials for applications in biomedicine. However, for the effective design of materials for therapeutic applications, it is critical to achieve controlled and/or triggered degradation. This Feature Article highlights the development of degradable click carriers and their investigation in biological conditions.

    2. Smart Molecularly Imprinted Polymers: Recent Developments and Applications (pages 903–915)

      Yi Ge, Benjamin Butler, Farhan Mirza, Sabeeh Habib-Ullah and Dan Fei

      The field of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) is rapidly evolving and of increasing importance to our society. “Smart” MIPs are intellectual MIP systems that show tunable response(s) to external stimuli, such as temperature, pH, light, ionic strength, biomolecules, and magnetic fields, having considerable potential and applications across a wide range of fields.

    1. Access to Intrinsically Glucoside-Based Microspheres with Boron Affinity (pages 916–921)

      Andrew P. Vogt, Thomas Tischer, Udo Geckle, Alexandra M. Greiner, Vanessa Trouillet, Michael Kaupp, Leonie Barner, Thorsten Hofe and Christopher Barner-Kowollik

      Version of Record online: 27 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201200834

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Intrinsically glucoside-based microspheres are prepared in olive oil via a water-in-oil inverse suspension polymerization. The microspheres are characterized by scanning electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. A novel boronic acid fluorescent molecule is subsequently conjugated to the microspheres exhibiting the spatial distribution of glucoside as well as the affinity of the microspheres to bind with boron.

    2. Facile Fabrication of Multistimuli-Responsive Metallo-Supramolecular Core Cross-Linked Block Copolymer Micelles (pages 922–930)

      Zhishen Ge and Shiyong Liu

      Version of Record online: 22 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201300072

      Metallo-supramolecular core cross-linked (CCL) micelles are fabricated from terpyridine-functionalized double hydrophilic block copolymers via the formation of bis(terpyridine)ruthenium(II) complexes. The stable CCL micelles exhibit not only structural integrity under different pH and temperatures but multistimuli responsiveness in aqueous solution, including pH-responsive cores, thermo-responsive shells, and dissociable cross-linkers.

    3. Polyaniline–Polypyrrole Composites with Enhanced Hydrogen Storage Capacities (pages 931–937)

      Nour F. Attia and Kurt E. Geckeler

      Version of Record online: 26 APR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201300060

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Entangled polyaniline nanofibers are shown to be a good support for the synthesis of conducting polyaniline–polypyrrole composites with network morphology. The thin layer of polymerized polypyrrole covering the nanofibers improves the hydrogen storage capacity of the novel polymer composites.

    4. Hierarchically Porous Materials from Layer-by-Layer Photopolymerization of High Internal Phase Emulsions (pages 938–943)

      Maja Sušec, Samuel Clark Ligon, Jürgen Stampfl, Robert Liska and Peter Krajnc

      Version of Record online: 19 APR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201300016

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A combination of high internal phase emulsion (HIPE) templating and layer-by-layer photopolymerization within computer-guided manufacturing technology is applied for the preparation of hierarchically porous polymeric structures with four levels of porosity. Objects with predetermined macroscopical structure and internal polyHIPE architecture are formed, exhibiting pores from micro- to macroscopic in size.

    5. Colorimetric and Fluorometric Detection of Neomycin Based on Conjugated Polydiacetylene Supramolecules (pages 944–948)

      Guodong Zhou, Fang Wang, Huilin Wang, Srinivasulu Kambam and Xiaoqiang Chen

      Version of Record online: 6 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201200837

      Polydiacetylene supramolecules polymerized from a mixed liposome composed of N-(3-hydroxyphenyl)pentacosa-10,12-diynamide and pentacosa-10,12-diynoic acid at an optimal ratio of 1:9 display a unique colorimetric change (blue to red) and fluorescent enhancement in the presence of neomycin.

    6. Water Plasticizes Only a Small Part of the Amorphous Phase in Nylon-6 (pages 949–953)

      Nicolaas Reuvers, Hendrik Huinink and Olaf Adan

      Version of Record online: 16 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/marc.201300009

      How much of the amorphous phase of a nylon-6 film is affected by water at room temperature far below the glass transition temperature and will take part in water transport? In this study nylon films are saturated with H2O/D2O and investigated with NMR relaxometry. Furthermore, the relaxation curves reveal that above a moisture content of 4% a mobile type of water molecules is present in the nylon matrix.
