26_08b/2005Back Cover: The cover shows the use of the TiCp2Cl-catalyzed radical ring opening (RRO) of epoxides in the living ring opening polymerization of cyclic esters. Zn reduction of TiCp2Cl2 (red) produces the TiCp2Cl metalloradical (green) which upon epoxide RRO generates novel Ti alkoxide initiators (orange-blue) and provides access to a variety of epoxide-derived polymer chain ends. Further details can be found in the Communication by A. D. Asandei* and G. Saha on page 626.
