A molecular nano-floating gate approach using conjugated polymer nanoparticles is developed on page 1511 by W.-C. Chen and colleagues for achieving high performance transistor memory devices. The transistor memory device using discrete polyfluorene and poly(fluorene-alt-benzo[2,1,3]thiadiazole nanoparticles as the floating gates can effectively trap the electrons and lead to a large memory window, long retention time, and a high ON/OFF ratio of >104.

Water dispersible graphene functionalized with hydrophilic carbon nanotubes. The image demonstrates molecules of water, which surround carbon superstructures providing various modes of graphene-nanotube interaction. On page 1481, V. Georgakilas, R. Zbořil, and co-workers show that such a graphene hybrid is dispersible in many polar solvents and displays excellent electrical conductivity, offering a great potential in highly conductive polymers or inkjet printing technologies.

On page 1488, B. Herranz-Blanco, H. A. Santos, and co-workers fabricate a multistage drug delivery nanocomposite, comprising porous silicon nanoparticles and micellar pH-responsive polymers, by microfluidic nanoprecipitation. The drug-loaded multistage platform shows high cytocompatibility, pH-dependent cell growth inhibition capacity, and reduced internalization by phagocytic macrophage cells. This nanocomposite is a good candidate for further development as a platform for cancer drug delivery.

The morphology of rock-frogs toe pads, with elongated epithelial cells separated by channels, is specialized by A. del Campo and co-workers on page 1499 to allow safe and reversible attachment under running water. This design is transferred to elastomeric surfaces to achieve enhanced and orientationdependent vwet friction. (Photo credit: P. Engelen.)
