Inside Cover: Strain-Controlled Release of Molecules from Arrayed Microcapsules Supported on an Elastomer Substrate (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 3/2011)
A flexible patch placed on the hand releases molecules upon opening and closing of the hand. U. Jeong and co-workers describe in their Communication on page 724 ff. the fabrication of arrays of microcapsules onto an elastomer substrate. Preloaded molecules are released upon mechanical stretching of the elastomer, thus providing a potential drug-release application.
