Back Cover: A new approach for preparation of gold nano-porous films was prepared from Au nanoparticles under-going an exchange reaction with PS-b-PBO micelles in solutions to form a block copolymer/Au composite. After the pyrolysis of the block copolymer templates at a specific temperature to avoid the collapse of the gold nanoparticles, a nanoporous gold film was formed. The materials that were fabricated by this method have potential applications as modified electrodes. Further details can be found in the article by S.-W. Kuo,* H.-Y. Yang, C.-F. Wang, and K.-U. Jeong on page 344.
