- Beyond State of the Art Honeycomb Membranes: High Performance Ordered Arrays from Multiprogrammable Linear-Dendritic Block Copolymers
Surinthra Mongkhontreerat, Marie V. Walter, Oliver C. J. Andrén, Yanling Cai and Michael Malkoch

A new generation of high performance honeycomb membranes is presented from multiprogrammable block copolymers. Facile crosslinking results in functional membranes that are noticed to withstand temperatures up to 400 °C and pH from 1–14. These state-of-art honeycomb membranes are found to be excellent cell repellent surfaces and are exploited as masters for soft lithographical applications.

New dielectric elastomers exhibiting variable moduli are presented. The elastomers contain furan-maleimide Diels–Alder adduct moieties to administer the crosslinking densities, resulting in changes in the elastomers' moduli. Capacitive strain sensors based on this elastomer can be operated in both rigid and soft modes. Actuators are fabricated and operated in both high strain and high force output modes.

Article first published online: 1 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201570166
R. Matsuzaki and K. Tabayashi develop a highly stretchable, global, and distributed local strain sensing electrode made of GaInSn and polydimethylsiloxane for wearable devices. On page 3806, simultaneous measurement of the distributed local and global strains can be achieved using a single electrode line. A data-glove prototype is manufactured as an application of the strain sensing line, demonstrating identification of the folding state of fingers.

Article first published online: 1 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201570170
On page 3833, H.-K. Lee, Y.-H. Kim, H. Yang, and co-workers systematically investigate π-conjugated structures of a donor–acceptor semiconducting copolymer including a diketopyrrolopyrrole derivative. Unexpectedly, a coplanar conformation of the copolymer develops π-conjugated large layer-like structures in solution-cast films; the resulting OFET shows the highest charge carrier mobility of 3.7 cm2 V−1 s−1.
