Cover Picture: Vesicles and Polymerized Vesicles from Thiophene-Containing Rod–Coil Block Copolymers (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 7/2003)

42_07/2003Enzymes in vesicles are able to catalyze the reaction with substrates that permeate the vesicle membrane. The cover picture shows a vesicle built up from a rigid-rod diblock copolymer that is filled with Candida antarctica lipase B enzymes. The thiophene groups in the polymer can be polymerized by the addition of a metal complex, which may result in conducting vesicle membranes thus creating new possibilities in the area of nanoreactors. Further information can be found in the Communication by A. Rowan, R. Nolte et al. on page 772 ff.
