25_13/2004Cover: Integration of sequence-defined oligopeptides into synthetic polymers opens a broad scope of possibilities for interfacing synthetic and biological systems. The cover picture features a two-step procedure used to realize such chimera structures, with defined molecular weights and low polydispersity indices. The presented strategy includes the solid-phase supported synthesis of an oligopeptide ATRP macroinitiator, subsequently followed by a solution-phase atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP).

Further details can be found in the Communication by H. Rettig, E. Krause, and H. G. Börner* on page 1251.
