Back Cover: Top-down multidimensional mass spectrometry, interfacing electrospray ionization (ESI) with ion mobility mass spectrometry (IM-MS) and energy resolved (gradient) tandem mass spectrometry (gMS2), reveals the stoichiometries, architectures, and intrinsic stabilities of coordinatively bound supramolecular polymers with high sensitivity and specificity. Crystalline or highly pure samples are not required due to the dispersive nature of the orthogonal IM and MS steps. Further details can be found in the article by K. Guo, Z. Guo, J. M. Ludlow III, T. Xie, S. Liao, G. R. Newkome,* and C. Wesdemiotis* on page 1539.

Front Cover: A RGD peptide is covalently conjugated to a fluorescent selenocompound BSeC using polyethylenimine as a linker, which forms a nanosystem in aqueous solution. This rational design effectively enhances the selective cellular uptake of BSeC in human glioma cells, and increases its selectivity between cancer and normal cells. Further details can be found in the article by L. Yang, W. Li, Y. Huang, Y. Zhou, and T. Chen* on page 1559.

Biomimetic polymer nanocompartments (polymersomes) with ion-selective membrane permeability are designed by insertion of ionomycin. The ionophore preserves the architecture of polymersomes and is able to transport Ca2+ ions through membranes with thicknesses in the range of 10.7–13.4 nm.
