Front Cover: The cover picture shows a cartoon representation of emission colors of terpyridine–lanthanide complexes attached along a polymer backbone. A recent study of these terpyridine-containing polymers with various concentrations of Dy(III), Eu(III), and Tb(III) demonstrated the ability to generate a variety of colors, including true white light. Continued progress in synthetic chemistry and macromolecular characterization will enable advanced materials from these metal-ligated polymers. Further details can be found in the article by R. Shunmugam and G. N. Tew* on page 1355. Dr. Morris Slutsky is acknowledged for assistance with the cover image.
