23_06b/2013Stimuli-Responsive Materials: Double Stimuli-Responsive Isoporous Membranes via Post-Modification of pH-Sensitive Self-Assembled Diblock Copolymer Membranes (Adv. Funct. Mater. 6/2013)

An isoporous integral asymmetric block copolymer membrane obtained by a non-solvent solvent exchange process is reported by Volker Abetz and co-workers on page 731. The surface pores can be reversibly closed and opened by changing the pH value. Postmodification of this membrane with a temperature-sensitive block leads to a double stimuli-responsive membrane, in which the pores can be reversibly opened and closed by both pH and temperature changes. Thorsten Wolff is acknowledged for the design of the back cover image.
