    Back Cover: A novel and easy approach to construct a redox-responsive supramolecular hydrogel is described via co-assembly from small organic molecules. The nanofibrous hydrogel is demonstrated to encapsulate and controllably release a model drug under reductive conditions mimicking the intracellular environment. This redox-responsive co-assembled hydrogel holds great promise as a drug carrier for controllable drug release in nanomedicine and cancer therapy. Further details can be found in the article by W. Ji, G. F. Liu, M. X. Xu, and C. L. Feng* on page 1945.

    Front Cover: Electrospinning and carbonization of poly(ionic liquids) (PILs) into fiber mats is demonstrated to produce carbonaceous fiber mats with high electric conductivity. Systematic analysis provides insight into the structural development, and shows that electrical conductivity of the disordered nitrogen-enriched carbon mats is influenced by the complex interplay of the atomic microstructure, the amount and the nature of nitrogen dopant, and the overall chemical composition. Further details can be found in the article by M. Einert, C. Wessel, F. Badaczewski, T. Leichtweiß, C. Eufinger, J. Janek, J. Yuan, M. Antonietti, and B. M. Smarsly* on page 1930.

    Bioresponsive hydrogels are polymeric materials, designed to influence specific interactions with cellular systems during their biologically environmental dependent sol-to-gel transition process. Several key hydrogel materials developed in our group are discussed with reference to promising healthcare applications.
