Front Cover: We have demonstrated that the RAFT/MADIX system can effectively control the polymerization of vinyl acetate (VA) in miniemulsion. The living polymerization of VA using MADIX in homogeneous systems was only recently reported. The chart on the bottom left depicts the “living” nature of the polymerization. The polymer has a relatively narrow polydispersity and the molecular weight increases with conversion. Further details can be found in the Communication by R. W. Simms, T. P. Davis, and M. F. Cunningham* on page 592.
