Back Cover: The image depicts the efficient conversion of RAFT functionalized microspheres via a hetero Diels-Alder reaction introducing narrow polydispersity polycaprolactone onto their surface. The transformation is accompanied by a decolorization of the spheres as thiocarbonyl functions are transformed into 3,6-dihydro-2H-thiopyran rings that constitute the linkage points on the microspheres. Further details can be found in the article by L. Nebhani, S. Sinnwell, A. J. Inglis, M. H. Stenzel,* C. Barner-Kowollik,* and L. Barner* on page 1431.
