Frontispiece: A Werkstoffverbund (laminated composite) manufacturing concept is used to produce high performance renewable bacterial cellulose (BC) nanopaper reinforced thermoplastic laminates. The mechanical performance of the resulting BC-reinforced thermoplastic laminates is found to be dependent on the tensile performance of the reinforcing BC nanopaper. Further details can be found in the article by T. Montrikittiphant, M. Tang, K.-Y. Lee,* C. K. Williams, and A. Bismarck* on page 1640.

Back Cover: The figure illustrates a temperature dependent shape memory particle transition. The left most image illustrates the original particle shape (harvested). The 10 × 1 μm boomerangs are converted to their temporary bent shapes (center) by stretching 250%. The temporary shape is exposed to a temperature above the Ttrans of the polymer until the particles return to the original shape. Further details can be found in the article by S. M. Brosnan, A.-M. S. Jackson, Y. Wang, and V. S. Ashby* on page 1653.

Front Cover: Supramolecular interactions through host-guest interactions are used to realize adhesion between hydrogels modified by host molecules and substrates modified by guest molecules. Here, control of adhesion between hydrogels with cyclodextrin and glass substrates with stimuli responsive molecules by external stimuli is reported. This concept is adapted for bonding between materials through molecular recognition without any adhesives. Further details can be found in the article by Y. Takashima, T. Sahara, T. Sekine, T. Kakuta, M. Nakahata, M. Otsubo,Y. Kobayashi, and A. Harada* on page 1646.
