Front Cover: Polymer science at BAM covers a wide range of different activities and is dedicated to BAM's general mission of “safety”. This includes BAM's participation in standardization and regulation, and its obligation to transfer technology. The activities range from fire retardants to diluted polyelectrolytes in solution. For a more detailed overview of the work of BAM, see the Essay “Past, Present, and Future of Polymer Science at BAM” by M. Hennecke* on page 2327.
