    On page 5617, L. Yang, Z. Chen and co-workers report the development of solid-state, flexible, and rechargeable zinc–air batteries with high energy density using a porous-gelled polymer electrolyte. The highly promising battery is ultrathin, yet mechanically robust and capable of operating under extreme bending conditions, which is particularly interesting for emerging portable and flexible electronic applications.

    A novel method to fabricate water-born polymeric semiconductors with high charge carrier mobility is demonstrated by Y.-H. Kim, D. S. Chung, and co-workers on page 5587. They develop “smart” surfactant engineering, which enables very efficient removal of surfactant after film deposition from water-born colloids. This leads to recovery of interparticle charge-coupling and therefore high charge-carrier mobility up to 2.5 cm2 V−1 s−1.

    Tumor Microenvironments: Rapid 3D Extrusion of Synthetic Tumor Microenvironments (Adv. Mater. 37/2015) (page 5445)

    Joshua M. Grolman, Douglas Zhang, Andrew M. Smith, Jeffrey S. Moore and Kristopher A. Kilian

    The generation of cell-laden spatially organized 3D hydrogels is demonstrated by K. A. Kilian and co-workers on page 5512, using macrophages and breast adenocarcinoma cells as a heterotypic model that mimics aspects of the tumor microenvironment. This versatile and tunable approach for fabricating soft materials in organized architectures may prove useful for engineering model systems for therapeutic development, and scaffolds for tissue engineering.
