    Front Cover: A valuable preparation method for hierarchic porous inorganic materials is presented. Honeycomb-patterned porous inorganic films having hierarchic pores are prepared from various nanoscale bricks consisting of inorganic nanoparticles stabilized with a catechol-containing copolymer by using water droplets as templates. The fabrication method allows the preparation of hierarchic porous films from inorganic nanoparticles of various shapes and materials. Further details can be found in the article by Y. Saito,* M. Shimomura, and H. Yabu* on page 1763.

    Back Cover: Poly-(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPA) hydrogel films doped with uniaxially aligned liquid crystalline nanosheets are synthesized with the help of an electric field. The gels are printed with a photo-responsive dye pattern with μm-scale resolution. The photo-irradiated gel shows temporal expansion along one direction followed by anisotropic shrinkage, which is an anomalous behavior for a conventional PNIPA gel. Further details can be found in the article by T. Inadomi, S. Ikeda, Y. Okumura, H. Kikuchi, and N. Miyamoto* on page 1741.

  5. Degradable Cationic Nanohydrogel Particles for Stimuli-Responsive Release of siRNA

    Stimuli-responsive degradable cationic nanohydrogel particles can be synthesized by cross-linking self-assembled amphiphilic reactive ester precursor polymers with disulfide-modified spermine derivatives. The resulting nanogels can release their siRNA payload in a reductive milieu like the cytosol and at the same time disassemble into single polymer chains to avoid nanoparticle accumulation.
