Shogo Amemori, Dr. Kenta Kokado and Prof. Dr. Kazuki Sada Inside Back Cover: Polymer Phase-Transition Behavior Driven by a Charge-Transfer Interaction (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 15/2013) Angewandte Chemie International Edition 52
The lower critical solution temperature (LCST), is a well-established phase-transition behavior of polymer solutions, and it has attracted much interest with regard to stimuli-sensitive materials. In their Communication on page 4174 ff., K. Sada et al. demonstrate facile control of the LCST behavior of an organic polymer by manipulating the charge-transfer (CT) interactions between the polymer and an effector. The appearance of CT bands enables a quantitative evaluation of the thermodynamics of association.
