Synthesis, characterization, and polymerization of vinylimidazole based high-temperature ionic liquid asymmetric ion pair comonomers (IPCs) by different radical polymerization methods are presented by Satyasankar Jana, Vivek Arjunan Vasantha, Ludger Paul Stubbs, Anbanandam Parthiban, and Julius G. Vancso on page 3260. This investigation provides insights into the polymerization behavior of each individual component of asymmetric IPCs. The ionic interactions prevailing in the resultant copolymers are also discussed. The cover structures depict ionic interactions present in the polymers produced from asymmetric IPCs and the background image highlights the possible application of these materials for creating antifouling surfaces for marine environments similar to zwitterionic polymers.
