Cover: The cover picture describes the phenomenologically novel interaction of cyclodextrins (CDs) with micelle-like aggregates formed from an alternating copolymer of sodium maleate and dodecyl vinyl ether. It is demonstrated that the competition with self-association of dodecyl groups enhances the selectivity towards α-CD and causes the cooperativity. Further details can be found in the article by D. Taura, A. Hashidzume, and A. Harada* on page 2306.
