Substitution at the catecholamine 6-position affects the deposition thickness, kinetics, and homogeneity of catecholamine coatings due to the modification of the oxidation potential of the catechol groups. Increasing the hydroxyl group acidity results likewise in changes in pH response and water uptake. These results pave the way toward the definition of structure–property relationships based on dopamine substitution effects in polycatecholamine layers and derived polymers.

Front Cover: Ordering phenomena in polymers are core principles in biological and synthetic macromolecules. A precision poly(olefin) containing a beta-turn mimic as a repetitive folding-constraint after every 16 methylene units is designed, which enables the constrained crystallization of the methylene units to be studied within the obtained polymer. Further details can be found in the article by S. Reimann, U. Baumeister, and W. H. Binder* on page 1963.
