      Front Cover: Poly(tetrafluoroethylene) (PTFE) submitted to a post-discharge low-pressure oxygen RF plasma treatment exhibits, at high DC bias, superhydrophobic behavior. An alveolar surface structure resulting from chemical etching of PTFE by oxygen radicals is revealed by AFM. XPS shows that such surfaces are resistant to the adsorption of proteins such as BSA. Further details can be found in the article by N. Vandencasteele, B. Nisol, P. Viville, R. Lazzaroni, D. G. Castner, and F. Reniers* on page 661.

      Back Cover: The cover illustration shows a schematic diagram of the dielectric barrier discharge system (top left) used to deposit plasma polymer films with high concentrations of nitrogen-containing functional groups. Also shown are NEXAFS spectra (top right) and FTIR spectra (bottom left) used for semiquantitative analysis of nitrile functionalities (bottom right), where excellent agreement may be noted. Further details can be found in the article by P.-L. Girard-Lauriault, P. Desjardins, W. E. S. Unger,* A Lippitz, and M. R. Wertheimer* on page 631.
